Wind, Waves and Another Volcano
20 February 2019 | St Pierre - Martinique
Frank & Mandy
We left Prince Ruper Bay, Portsmouth, Dominica at dawn.
We are now in Sainte Pierre in Martinique anchored under a volcano.
The trip was another heavy weather fast, wet and very bouncy passage.
We had over 30 knots all the way and a number of squalls over 40.
We are glad we have such a strong well built Swedish boat.
We were sailing at 7 to over 8 knots all the way.
We still have a slight problem with a leaky forehatch and we are getting quite a bit of water down the mast into the bilge.
We have had days of this heavy weather sailing and we are both feeling very tired.
The weather forecast is for even more wind so we plan to spend a few days recuperating in Martinique.
