Lisa and Gustaf left us yesterday and we are all sad, and it feels empty. The kids are acting out and they want to go home to see them.We had a truly great time with them!
Yesterday we sailed up to St Vincent and had to tack against hard wind (30 knots) and big waves (4-5 meters). But the journey was still faster than planned and we where there iin three hours.
Went to Young island and at seven pm we went with a taxi to the airport. I followed them if there would be any problems with immigration.
Stayed the night at Young island and took a taxi today to a "big" supermarket in St Vincent. Bought food and sailed down to Bequia again. It all felt very nice, downwiind when suddenly the waves raised like mountains and started to brake around us. We had gone fron 800 meters to 85 and the water went upwards. Had to handsteer the boat and we closed all the hatches etc.
Once inside the Admirality bay we where safe and now we are at anchor again.
