waiting for wind at St Pierre
this morning but very light and opposite direction to forecast – island
effects! Upped anchor at 08.15 and motored sailed 10m to clear north of island
and find clear wind. Nice sail in 10-12k to bottom end of Dominica, then wind turned to the north again
behind the island, so motor sailed the last 15m to Portsmouth arriving 16.20. All a bit of a
pain, but we are here less a bit of diesel, and a few more engine hours.
Surprisingly a lot of boats here. Seem like the area has really upped its game
and is quite a popular spot. Not sure if we will stay or just move on tomorrow.
