TS Chantal, Bequia

TS Chantal has passed through the windward islands and down here in Admiralty Bay, Bequia it was a bit of "the blow that wasn't".
A few heavy rain squalls and lightning with hot sticky calms between, the wind certainly did not even top 20 knots.
The trades should set back in at about 20 knots in a few hours and our meander towards Grenada will continue later this week.
About 30 cruising boats and a dozen or so charter boats hunkered down here for Chantal and I don't believe even one dragged, in this harbor known for it's poor holding in some spots.
I hope everyone in the Antilles has an as easy encounter with TS Chantal!

Re: TS Chantal, Bequia

Great place to be. Stop at Mystique and say high to Shanaya for me and make sure you spend a night in the Tabago kays and swim w/ the turtles.
