Busy day, good day for local chandlers; bought Plastimo 6 man liferaft, Fortress FX37 as kedge/second anchor, main & genoa sheets, fishing & snorkelling gear etc. Did a great test sail with Jerry beyond Pointe Salines, the southern tip of Grenada. Back to food & booze shopping. Got to the fuel dock just after closing, filled up with water and were allowed to stay the night there but didn’t take on fuel. Changed boat name from Rebel Yell to Milano Blanco, finished sticking new letters on in the dark. Last minute fitting of repaired refrigeration pipes (organised two months earlier!) then Robbie, Josh & Jerry hit the town, in no uncertain fashion judging by the state of them next morning. 12 miles
