Made it to our harbour in Guadeloupe 20 minutes
after sunset and just as darkness descended after a 106 mile cruise up from
More beautiful sailing conditions with Tilly Mint
doing 10 knots on a beam reach. The same story though of the winds dropping
whilst running up behind the islands - today the top of Martinique and the whole
of Dominica were in the way.
We saw three sperm whales today - huffing and
puffing on the surface for about five minutes, before each popped his tail in
the air and dived. A wonderful sight.
And we caught a huge fish. I know it was huge
because it came off - so it must have been a massive marlin or
55 miles up to Antigua tomorrow where I shall sadly
leave Tilly Mint for her journey across the Atlantic - not before taking in a
bit of the sights of Antigua during Antigua week
