Freya of Clyde: We've left St Maarten @ Sail Blogs
by NewsReader 04-12-2006

We left St Maarten on Monday morning, with the intention of stopping overnight at Nevis. As usual, nothing quite works out to plan and we stopped instead at St Kitts and rocked and rolled all night in the anchorage. It was just too late to get to Nevis. However, we were up again at 6.00 am on Tuesday and left for an anchorage at the top end of Guadeloupe and after a very bumpy sail in a rather confused sea, we arrived outside Daishaies at 1.00 am on Wednesday morning. Rather than try to anchor in the dark again, we decided to sail on to Les Saintes. The wind howled until we got about half way down Guadeloupe when it decided to stop blowing altogether and we had to switch on the engine. We motored for about 3 hours and then the wind came back, and we had a lovely sail all the rest of the way to Les Saintes, arriving around 10.30 am. It's beautiful here, and very hot. I haven't found a wi-fi signal yet, so this blog is coming to you all via Sailmail. Direct Link
