Early start on Christmas Eve
23 December 2017 | On Passage Guadeloupe to Les Saites
Mandy and Frank
Happy Christmas Eve to you all.
An early start for us.
I was up at 05.00 and Mandy a little later.
We lifted the anchor at dawn (6.00) and set sail south.
We are currently on passage down the west coast of Guadeloupe and heading for The Saintes, which is half way between Guadeloupe and Dominica.
The straits can be very rough and Mandy has dosed up on sea sick pills. Last year the straits were very rough indeed as we fought our way to Pointe e Pitre to meet friends flying in.
We should arrive mid/late morning - we will let you know of our safe arrival. We will miss Pigeon Island and the fantastic diving, perhaps we will come back after Christmas.
Meantime we are very much looking forward to meeting up with all OCC friends. The fishing line is out ..... so we are hoping for a Christmas tuna supper!
