Hi Folks,
Tuesday 1 April 2014
We left our muddy anchorage at 06.30H Local (UTC –3) today. The mud was grey and tenacious, added to which the anchor buoy came up last and was even muddier than the anchor – well almost. Mud squared!
Karacool crabbed out of the river entrance into the buoyed channel at 07.00H and into a rainy world. The combination of currents, swell and tides made the sea very confused. However as we headed out and away from the mainland the wind has settled and the sea is calmer. The Iles du Salut slipped behind us at about 0900H and we are really on our way to Trinidad (701 Nms to go).
All well on board.
