At anchor in Admiralty Bay.Chilling out and enjoying sunshine .
Passage so far has all been to windward with steady 20knt of N/E wind gusting at times to 28knt.We have not uswd any engine so far and passge times have been very respectable with average boat speed circa 6knt.Boat performing very well.
Plan is now to visit Mustique this weekend if we can find a mooring and then North agin to Martinique early next week to prpare for the 900nm crossing to Panama.This will with great certainty be down wind with winds of upto 30knt around the turn into the gulf of Panama
