We ventured out around 15:30 to go to The Baths after all the tourists had gone. The wind was still hitting 20-25kts so the RIB ride was bumpy, but it’s always 20-25kts from the east, every bloody day and guess what it is tomorrow and for the next bloody week!! Really looking forward to getting beaten up for another 24 hours and a night at sea heading for Antigua. I’ve given up looking at the weather – there’s no point – it’s always the same. Sorry but after 3,000M down the east coast up wind and against current we and the boat just want a nice sail and without the stay sail we won’t be able to point at 35 degrees to the wind, so really want a nice reach all the way down.
Anyway The Baths are very nice, we spent some time swimming, walking and climbing and spoke with an Australian couple on a Amel Super Maramu. They had just crossed from Cape Verde to St Martin and sailed straight up to the BVIs after going back to their ski chalet in Portes de Soleil. Hmm.. I do miss skiing and this season is now 3 years since we last skied.
