Wonderful sailing back to St. Anne today.  Initially very lumpy rounding Morne Jacqueline motoring directly into the wind and short sharp chop.  After rounding Pt. du Diamant and passing Rocher du Diamant we set sail with reefed main and full staysail, beating into a moderate SE’ly.  We tacked several times in order to sail into to St. Anne and it was great using the self-tacker!  Also, I enjoyed experimenting with the new lay lines and sailing data pages included with the latest Raymarine software update.

St. Anne is a beautiful place with plenty of room to anchor.  Nina and I went ashore and once again our efforts to clear in were thwarted because everything is closed for the VE Day public holiday!

After some swimming and sundownwers we went ashore for cocktails and dinner at La Dunette.
