The first sail of the season set off to an inauspicious start with grey and grizzly skies, rain and very little wind. Damp and soggy we motor sailed a good portion of the way to Tyrell Bay in Carriacou, our first stop on our journey north, in the company of our friend, Jon from Imagine of Falmouth.

Not only were we treated to calm and shimmery sunshine by day but also by a bright and full moon casting shimmery light by night. I counted my blessing once again for this bright, colourful and wonderful world that we live in.
Over the following days we took short steps, motoring in the flat calm, glassy seas and windless days a few miles to the next islands; 10 miles to
30 miles to Bequia readying ourselves for the longer trip up to St Lucia. We
swam and snorkeled in the gorgeous sea as much as we could but it seems that
jellyfish are out en mass marring our fun.

We are now snuggly anchored in the flat calm of
a good rainsquall has washed all the salt away.
I think a roti at Jambe de Bois is called for this evening and a cold
