14.30: 17:53N 62:51.05W Dropped anchor in Gustavia's very full anchorage
after exactly twelve hours passage / engine time. From the water it looks
a very nice place. Put up French courtest flag and yellow un-cleared
pennant, inflated tender and went ashore. Lovely place; very chique
featuring expensive restaurants and all the designer shops you can think
of. A line of super yachts lay stern to in the small harbour. One I
noticed was registered in Douglas. Found Customs closed so clearing in -
and out will have to wait until tomorrow. Had a meal ashore before
returning to Bootlegger.

Wednesday 09 January: After Clearing In, Spent day in St Barts. Place very
French and the people overwhelmingly Caucasian. Later Cleared Out before
later dining and returning to boat.
