Raised anchor 0920 this morning for a motor and sail to Canouan. Still pretty breezy with 20+ knots at times unfortunately from the exact direction we wanted to go. The sea between Mayreau and Canouan fairly rough with a short chop and did manage to keep any waves from breaking over us. We have anchored just off the Tamarind Beach Hotel at 1140, in 4m of water, looks very upmarket. It is closed so will not get a chance to sample its delights. This Island has the north gated off as well as the south to the airport due to some obviously exclusive resorts therefore we won't be able to get around the whole island. Already today seem some private jets takeoff from the airport less than a mile away.
Will go ashore soon to see if our wallets can get topped up and for a meal if anything open, which from where we are have not seen anything doing business. Hard life in the sunshine and sandy beaches.
