02 February 2019 | Gustavia - St Barts
Frank & Mandy
On Friday we sailed from Barbuda to St Barts.
It was a good crossing and it took about 10 hours.
We had full sail all the way and made good time.
On route we caught 3 large baracuda (which we threw back) and one small tuna (which I filleted).
We spend Friday exploring Gustavia the main town and port.
The difference between St Barts and many of the other islands is staggering.
It is a very wealthy place with very wealthy tourists and expensive fashion shops.
Geologically it is very different too with hard igneous rock and impressive rock formations.
Yesterday we also helped fix a generator on a small motor catamaran.
We are making a list and ordering all the parts we need shipping out to fix our genset, rod-kicker and aircon.
All the boats out here are always happy to have visiting crew wishing to bring spares out!
