My Caribbean sailing season is reaching it's end for this year. I picked up my last crew member, Gwen, in St. Lucia.
She agreed to take some of her Easter break while her students were gone and help me sail Mile High Dream back to Grenada where she works at the university. I had just finished a wonderful week with great friends and excellent sailing.
This week proved no different. Winds were excellent with calm seas. The motor ran only for a short time every day since we could raise the sails and move right along between five and six knots.
We took time to climb Grand Piton in St. Lucia. I asked Gwen if she was interested and she told me it had been on her bucket list ever since she read an article about it. Ok off we went, only two miles one way. One way straight up and then straight down. What a view and what a work out.
We then did a long sail to Bequia. Here we met with old friends, both mine and Gwen's. We were there for the start of Bequia's Easter race week. Some sailors from Grenada had come up to race so we stayed long enough to watch the start before sailing south.
The last five weeks of sailing with family and good friends, fair winds, and calm seas reminds me of why I do this. I forget about the dingy flipping over creating a yard sale on the ocean bottom, the leaking keel that needs repair, dingy davits that finally failed, or the constant attention to the motor to keep it running. These are part of the cruising lifestyle that I have chosen and the wonderful days that make it all worthwhile.
