12 January 2019 | St Louis - Marie Galante
Frank & Mandy
We had an absolutely cracking sail up to Marie Galante on Thursday.
There were exceptional winds with a lot of south in them.
That enabled us to sail all the way and we anchored off St Louis before midday.
We had barbecued fish we caught for supper!
Friday was Mandy’s OCC net controller day with good propagation she was able to talk to people as far away as The San Blas Islands and USVIs.
We hired a car for the day first thing and toured the whole island with Brisa.
Marie Galante is a very sleepy place with little traffic.
We visited all the beaches, towns and three rum distilleries.
Mandy drove and I navigated which always prevents any arguments!
We saw large numbers of cattle and fields of sugar cane.
There was a fantastic sunset last night with the sun disappearing behind The Saintes.
