All is well on board and we are pleased to have had another comfortable passage. Sailing through the Caribbean chain is not without its challenges: the flat water afforded by the lee of the islands brings with it very light airs and wind shadows. However as soon as you venture out in to the channels between the islands, conditions freshen instantly.

We are now safely anchored off Fort St Louis, a short dinghy ride to Martinique's capital, Fort de France and are looking forward to exploring the island.
