The Four Baracuda
28 January 2019 | Low Bay - Barbuda
Mandy and Frank
Saturday got off to a bad start with our 17 year old generator dying.
I have been coaxing the poor old unit along for a number of seasons and trying to put off the inevitable.
However, I spent most of the day working on it and managed to resuscitate it. But we will now buy a new one.
The evening was much more pleasant as we had a pot-luck supper on board Infinity B with Brisa, Looma and Cranstackie.
On Sunday we left the Jolly Harbour anchorage at 7.00 and sailed to Barbuda.
It was a cracking sail with a reefed main and the staysail. Looma sailed with us but were faster as they had more sail out and we were fishing.
We caught 4 very large baracuda which are not safe to eat this far north, so we threw them back.
We are now anchored off the most stunning beach at Low Bay.
We are hoping to visit the famous frigate bird colony which managed to survive last years hurricane.
