Monday 9th February, after leaving Clarkes Court Bay we have a sail steady around to Halifax Bay in the company of Ray & Irene, C Drifters, where we clean the hull and spend the night ready for Chris to adjust the rigging and then set the sails for Fort de France, Martinique.
Even the boobies admire our new mainsail, there was a discussion in the cockpit about the name boobies, as it also is gannet, which is also Sula, it begged the question would ‘Booby Sailing School’ get more interest than ‘Sula Sailing School’ and had we been missing a marketing opportunity for years? Anyway, 26 hours and 135 miles later we drop anchor and check into Martinique. The anchorage is really rough and dinghy landing not very friendly so on Thursday morning we move anchorage to Anse Matin where we anchored the very first time we visited Martinique, it is still as lovely as ever.
And so after a brief 3 day visit we raise our anchor and set sail for Montserrat which has a very exposed anchorage where we hope we will be able to anchor, this will be a new Island for us. x
