72 hours in Montserrat

Montserrat 9th April 2018 The only port of entry for yachts arriving in Montserrat is Little Bay, so that's where we dropped our anchor feeling battered and knackered after a lively and lumpy sail from Guadeloupe. Although Little Bay (as the name implies) is small,...

Death in Paradise

Wednesday 4th April 2018 Whales Soon after leaving Îles des Saintes, we switched off the engine and enjoyed a peaceful sail most of the way to Deshaies with the wind blowing at a steady angle and speed. This was champagne sailing without the champagne. Only when...

Îles des Saintes

Martinique to Dominica 29th March 2018 The sail to Dominica was superb in even flatter seas than the last time we sailed. In weather like this, it is difficult to imagine the scenes of devastation on 18th September 2017 when hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on Dominica. ...

Calm in Cumberland Bay

Mojitos Calabash and Honesty After nearly being flattened by our nemesis, the barge and tug, to say it's a relief to be out of the way of the action is somewhat of an understatement. Safely tied to a tree outside the Mojito restaurant under the watchful gaze of Kenny...

Nearly Crushed in Cumberland Bay

You Have to Move! The shouting started at 10 PM. All was peaceful in the bay before that. Maria and I sat below watching a film when we heard someone outside shouting "Hey!", followed by something illegible, then a pause for a minute or so, then "Hey!" We thought it...
