Sail to St Lucia
15 March 2012 | Marigot Bay St Lucia
We left St Vincent this morning around 7am and arrived at Marigot Bay around 3PM.
We did not stop at the Pitons this time (maybe on the way south)
The first couple of hours of the crossing where pretty rough and the wind was a lot more on the nose then I had expected..
We left a"bunch" of boats in the dust - passed them during the crossing as they where not passionate enough and started sailing into the channle way to early - those boats, where pushed way to much to the west of St Lucia and had to motor in for hours to make landfall ... When they took off, we both thought they where heading for the BVI or so :-)
We will probably stay a couple nights at Marigot Bay and then head up to Rodney Bay Marina where I'm planning on fixing our fresh water pump...
Jill bought some cute turtle made by a local artist (she thought.....)
I guess his business must be going very good- as he seems to sell them to every street vendor in town :-)
Jill was happy to see her good friend Thadia (Thadz) again- where she'll spend most of her time while we're here :)
