Two good days were spent in the marina at Le Marin where the AMEL team sorted out our bearing out pole and missing halyards.  We also had visits from engineers to work on the saloon air conditioning, it appears that the circuit board shipped to St Lucia is defective, the VHF radio which was tested and seems OK and the water maker which just required the quality sensor cleaning, I now know where to find this for the future.


Carrefour satisfied the requirement for shopping which was useful.


We managed to escape in enough time to motor 3 miles out to the anchorage of St Anne.  Eleven years ago we took our first Caribbean charter, celebrating our silver wedding anniversary, from Le Marin in Martinique and it was to St Anne that we headed for our first night having taken over our Sunsail charter
