The next morning we motored around to Sandy Isle, swam, had breakfast by 9.00 and then set off for Tobago Cays. We arrived in time for a swim with a couple of turtles, had lunch and got underway again. Made Bequia just before nightfall, ate on board and went ashore for a quick beer. 5 rum punches later we were on the dance floor in a local dive….
Slightly impaired the next morning we set off for Marigot Bay on St Lucia at around 9.00. Spent one hour doing man over board drills and then had good sailing in strong winds all the way there. Slight problems finding an anchorage as dusk turned into night but we eventually edged right into the inner mooring area and picked up a buoy. Dinner in the Rainforest restaurant (Christmas dinner in 2007) and away very early again this morning. Motored to Rodney Bay, getting in by 9.30 and then spent the morning on repairs - water maker leaking, two bilge pumps needing attention, new gas hose, picked up the life raft which had been serviced in Rodney Bay. Did some washing and water taxied around to Spinnaker for a late lunch on the beach. Lazy afternoon getting organised, dinner on board and early night.
