Distance from Carriacou: 39 logged miles
On Thursday, 24th March, at 8.30am we set sail for Union Island (10 miles). Strong trade winds from the East made our passage quite rough, but with the help of the engine, a triple reefed mainsail and the genoa furled, we arrived at 11am. One of the boat boys helped us to an excellent mooring buoy.
On Tuesday, 29th March, at 8.30 we set sail for Bequia (29 miles) in fresh easterly trade winds. It was a close reach on one tack and arrived in Admiral's Bay, Bequia, at 13.30, where we were lucky enough to be directed to the last available mooring buoy.
