Friendship Bay...Not!

30 January 2010 | Bequia (St. Vincent & The Grenadines)
Unfortunately, calm and uncrowded anchorages are a bit scarce in Bequia: seems you can either anchor with the masses in a calm, protected bay or opt for a bit more "action" during the night. We chose the latter at "Friendship Bay" and dropped the hook in what looked to be a reasonably calm spot. But after letting out 100' of chain we ended up a bit too close to shore for comfort. We pulled anchor and dropped in another spot - nope, way too rolly. 3rd spot - too close to shore again. By now we were all a bit tense - just drop the damn hook already! So here we sit, rolling around at anchor in the big swells of what we've renamed "Tension Bay"!
