Bonjour from Le Marin at the southern end of Martinique. We left Dominica on Tuesday after having stopped at Rosseau at the southern end of the island and arrived in St. Pierre, Martnique after a nice 35 sm sail. St. Pierre (once the capital of Martinique) had been erased by the eruption of a nearby volcano in 1902, traces of which are still visible today. From there we went on to Anse d'Arlet, a beautiful little anchorage further south. We had planned originally to stay there for a few days but current weather forecasts had us move on to Le Marin yesterday already in order to sail a more comfortable course towards St. Lucia on Sunday (hopefully something close to a beam reach rather than the close-hauled legs that have dominated so far). Approaching Le Marin is quite a sight - for the pure number of sailboats anchored and moored here as well as for the number of wrecked boats on the shoals and reefs in the channel. Incredible that this is now the major charter boat base on Martinique...
We're now looking forward to having Laura back on board after she arrives St. Lucia on Monday and will take advantage of the Patisseries on Martinique until then - stay tuned...

Hallo aus Le Marin, Martinique, wo wir seit gestern vor Anker sind. Wir haben Dominica am Dienstag nach einem Stopp in Rosseau am südlichen Ende der Insel verlassen und sind zunächst nach St. Pierre im Nordwesten von Martinique gesegelt. Nach dem Einklarieren dort sind wir weiter nach Anse d'Arlet, einer sehr schönen Ankerbucht weiter im Süden gezogen. Dort wollten wir ursprgl. ein paar Tage bleiben, aber in Anbetracht des Wetterberichts sind wir dann bereits gestern nach Le Marin aufgebrochen, um am Montag einen (hoffentlich) etwas angenehmeren Kurs nach St. Lucia segeln zu können (ca. 30° mehr "off the wind" ggü. Anse d'Arlet). Nächster Update aus St. Lucia - stay tuned...
