Back in Martinique
16 April 2017 | Petite Anse d'Arlet, Martinique
We had a great 160nm sail up from Grenada. The moon was full and the winds were ideal and we arrived after 25hrs for an average speed of about 6.5kts which is pretty satisfying. Notable events were a couple of pilot whales coming alongside so close that you could have stepped onto their backs - no photos I'm afraid. I was too surprised to do anything - and a large pod of dolphins escorting us into Martinique.
We have had a couple of tough weeks what with chasing elusive replacement credit cards around the Caribbean and a surprising number of boat issues, mainly the plumbing unfortunately, so we are hoping for a bit of a rest now before we head north to St Kitts to stack Leela for the summer.
At this point we expect to be home by mid-May
