Heading Home

22 April 2017 | Petite Anse d'Arlet, Martinique
We were planning to spend a couple more weeks in Martinique before heading north but weather (wind) rules. We have an ideal wind tomorrow then two weeks of light and variable conditions so it in time to go to avoid a long motor.

Tomorrow we will head up to St Pierre to clear out the do a 24hr run up to Monserrat. There is still some uncertainty but we should be home at the beginning of May. The idea is a little strange give what has happened while we have been away.
