Prince rupert bay, dominica

Arrived Dominica this afternoon. Interesting journey with periods of 12 knots and a decent spell at 30-35 but mostly 25ish. The first time we have sailed this boat with 3 reefs in the main.

We have already met 4 locals, Geoffrey the boat boy was first having come some 4 miles out to greet us, others in the anchorage selling fruit etc. Does anyone know English for "bugger off chap, I'm trying to anchor and don't want fruit right this bloody minute", seriously though they have been friendly and not pushy.

Lots of liquid sunshine here too, boxing day the only day since we arrived in the Caribbean that it did not rain. Water tanks Chokka though as we have a huge catchment area.
