Freya of Clyde: Short 20 odd mile hop to Dominica @ Sail Blogs
by NewsReader 04-20-2006

We set sail at 7.30 am this morning from Les Saintes for Dominica. Beautiful day and we managed to sail most of the way. As we approached Prince Rupert Bay (about a mile out at sea), one of the boat boys came out to meet us - and introduced himself as Albert and he is now our boat boy (known here as "yacht helpers") for the duration of our stay. We arranged to go up the Indian River with him tomorrow. After that, we booked in with Customs - the Customs man was a very, very nice man who asked us what "Freya" meant, so we gave him a very brief history of Freya and suggested he checks the internet to get the full story. Still no wi-fi connection, so no photographs at the moment. We're a rockin' an' a rollin' in this anchorage as the big sea swells roll into the bay and this may curtail our visit somewhat.
