Dramatical arrival in St. Lucia

04 August 2018
Pigeon Island seen from the "right" side

We are now in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia enjoying lazy days – finally!

It was a little hectical and a lot of work in Martinique as we were in a hurry to leave after the boat had been there for 18 months and we would have had to pay VAT to France. So off we went for St. Lucia with no sails up as we have a rot in the main mast. The forecast said waves of 1.3 meters, but we had 3 – 5! A sailboat needs sails to stay stable, so we had a terrible trip, not dangerous though. We were very relieved when we saw the characteristic Pigeon Island outside Rodney Bay getting closer. Then the engine stopped and we were drifting into the Caribbean Sea driven by heavy wind and high waves.......We got in VHF-contact with the rescue center in Martinique and were finally towed into Rodney Bay Marina after a couple of not so pleasant hours.

This is the third time we have been towed in to this place!!
