12 February 2012 | Headed for Rodney Bay, St Lucia
Ann Willauer; sunny, windy with squalls
After several days of constant high winds and squally weather, we left Bequia on Wednesday, 2/8. The forecast was for the winds to start dissipating and the wind to be E 18-20 knots. Under clearing skies we set off for an early crossing to St Vincent and up the west coast. Fine until we set off from St Vincent to St Lucia. The seas built to 12' and the wind became 20-30 knots, true. Both were from the East and we were making 8-9 knots over the ground, the only good news. After 9 hours we made Rodney Bay in time to go ashore for ice etc.! We had a comfortable night aboard watching our last movie on the computer. Sleep was not a problem!
