Passage from Salt Whistle Bay, Mayreau to Hillsborough, Carracou (12.8nm)

12:52.60N 61:11W Weather warm and sunny Wind: E Light. After a leisurely
breakfast we considered whether to stay a while longer in this picturesque
little bay which was full of othe cruisers. Our mind was made up for us
with the arrival of Customs and Immigration as we had not cleared in.

10.30 We made our way out to sea and motor sailed the fourteen miles down
to Carracou leaving Union Island to Starboard arriving at the Hillsborough
anchorage just north of the jetty.

12.45 12:29.067N 61:27.546W F.W.E. Distance done: 12.8nm Passage time
2hrs 15 minutes.

13.45 Went ashore to clear in and get some money.

15.50 12:29.067N 61:27.546W Departed Hillsborough for the short passage
around to Tyrell Bay. Distance: 4.8nm

16.30 12:27.66N 061:29.27W F.W.E. Tyrell Bay, Carriacou. Re-united with
Sue and Ash on Osprey who arrived a short while ago together with their
Canadian and Australian friends in two other boats. We all got together
for drinks and a good chin wag and catch up on the Canadian boat. Later we
were invited to Osprey for dinner and further catching up.
