27 February 2017 | Fort de France, Martinique
After an awesome beam reach down from Dominica to St Pierre in a steady 20kts, with Leela maintaining a steady 7kts, followed by an ugly sail down the Martinique coast with winds all over the place from flat calm to 30kts we have arrived in the capital Fort de France in time for the big carnival parade. It is certainly a spectacle but sound levels are way into the danger zone so I'm looking for my earplugs.... the change from Dominican nature to French urban is going to take some getting used to. At one point this morning I was ready to turn round and head back but I'm settling in. Carnival pics will follow.
