29 December 2018 | St Annes - Martinique
Frank & Mandy
We arrived safely in St Annes in Martinique late morning on Thursday.
We had a cracking sail, although we had to take prompt action to avoid be wiped out by a large Catamaran called Passion 2.
It went right across our bow even though we were on Starboard tack it then crossed the stern of the boat next to us.
A very dangerous manoeuvre and totally in breach of the International Collision Regulations.
We had lunch with Brisa and then had sun downers on board Infinity B with Mermaid, BlueJacket, Brisa and Mehalah.
On Friday Mandy ran the OCC net followed by breakfast ashore with our OCC friends in a local cafe.
We took the dinghy into Le Marin (between showers) half an hour away.
We were able to get a number of spares form the well stocked chandlers.
I'm trying to rebuild the 240v air on pump and the washing machine needs replacing soon.
So we will go back to the chandlers today (Saturday).
We were sad to hear that our good friend Ties is not well enough to come out in late March.
So we now have a vacancy for crew for a few weeks from March 23rd whilst Mandy is away skiing.
Thank you all again for your messages and comments.
