blustery and a bit squally
Well, we're not in Bequia. We are anchored behind Frigate Island just off Ashton, Union Island in St Vincent and the Grenadines. We're the fourth mast from the left (look for the shortest mast). We moved here Tuesday after watching the weather forecasts and deciding that an upwind bash to Bequia was not going to be any fun.
During December and January the Christmas winds never seemed to materialize. I'm not sure what one calls these winds, but they are howling (20s with gusts in the 30s) and it's been a bit squally. It looks as though the wind is in the forecast for at least the next week and a half to two weeks. So, we're adjusting our plans accordingly. This morning's plan is to check out of St Vincent on Saturday and head over to Tyrell bay and hang out there for awhile before heading back to Grenada and Prickly Bay.
