05 30.449N 054.02.000 St Laurent du Maroni
We arrive at our first anchorage in the river Maroni at 21.30 on 1st October after 25 hours motor sailing avoiding fishing boats with 2 miles of trailing nets and no lights, but here we are. We wait here to meet with the rest of the fleet so we can make our arrival in St Laurent on Friday all together, apart from Wind Whisper who decide they can’t stay any longer and have to head back to Tobago, very disappointing for David as it means now there are two boats light for the arrival (Orion 1 has stayed in Suriname although John & Deb have taken a ride with Aces 4). However we gathered at Crique Coswine and on Friday 3rd October we travel down to a loud and friendly welcome at St Laurent, our final destination on this trip.
This is the beginning of a week of social activities organised by the Neired’s Rally organisers and sponsors.
