16.30 Departed True Blue for Le Phare Bleu some 2.87 nm to the East. Once out

of the Bay we were punching into a strong Easterly wind and equally strong current

that quickly slowed us to a S.O.G. of just 2.5 to 3 knots. On arrival at Le Phare Bleu

we were offered an alongside berth on the outer pontoon which we were soon secured

18.30 FWE

After tidying up we went for supper in the Pool Bar, A good day.
