Martinique to Dominica

We left the anchorage in St Pierre at 6 am to sail the fifty odd miles to Dominica. The wind was low in the lee of Martinique so we motored to the top of the island where the wind picked up to 20+ knots and we were able to sail. As in all the open water sails between the islands the sea was a bit on the rough side but once we were in the lee of Dominica and the sea state improved it became a pleasant sail. On Dominica we went to a bay at the top of the island called Prince Rupert Bay and picked up a buoy for the night. We’d arrived at 15.30 which was a bit late to check in so this had to be done the following morning.
We were invited to dinner on board “Spray” as Barry had caught a large dorado/dolphin fish. Penny made an apple pie for pud, and Gerry found a carton of Ambrosia custard left over from their atlantic crossing, and of course we probably drank too much.
