Position 10:45.9N 61:25.6W Maracas Bay, Trinidad
Actually I should not be here: I am supposed to report directly to Chaguaramas, but Galleons Passage, the stretch of water between Tobago and Trinidad, is so full of shipping that I did not fancy a night crossing, and the Customs man in Scarborough was sympathetic. He said that he understood, and that I would probably 'get away with it'. So I sneaked into this lovely bay, just as the sun set, and I am hoping for a peaceful night. Just a little swell, but after a 12 hour sail, and with many sail chnges in the unsettled weather, I think that I will sleep well. Another dawn start tomorrow, and I should be in Chaguaramas for lunch.
