Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
What a nice place
09-Mar-2008, Prince Rupert Bay, Dominica

Anchored in Prince Rupert Bay/Dominica tonight after a longish sail from St. Pierre/Martinique. Prince Rupert Bay has been one of our favorite anchorages on the way down and it's very nice to be back here... almost no shore-side development, very lush scenery and very friendly people... met Jeffrey again who was our very first "boat boy" on the way down and will see him again for breakfast tomorrow.. this will probably be the first place that I will feel sad about leaving tomorrow... lots of things to look forward to though, stay tuned....

08-Mar-2008, St. Pierre, Martinique

Back in St. Pierre for one night... tomorrow will be another 50+ nm leg to Portsmouth/Dominica from where we will leave for Guadeloupe on Monday to meet with Jez and Tab who will sail with us for two weeks, first in Les Saintes/Guadeloupe and then up to English Harbour in Antigua ... Finally fixed the defect Y-valve on the toilette this afternoon - no more backflow from the holding tank (so we hope...) ... weather is forecasted to settle down a bit with relatively low winds for the first half of next week... don't mind the wind but will appreciate the seas going down a bit between the islands ... more once we reach Point-a-Pitrč in Guadeloupe.

Leap Day!
29-Feb-2008, St. Lucia, Anse de Pitons

Realized today that we picked the right year for our "sailing sabbatical" - 366 instead of 365 days!

Finally made contact with Sven from Arearea this morning via SSB on 8 MHz (we had sailed in tandem for two month in the western Med). They were about 400 nm from Antigua this morning and we look forward to seeing them again, hopefully in Guadeloupe.

We'll be leaving the Pitons tomorrow, slowly working our way back up the west coast of St. Lucia.
