We’re up at 0500 and watch as squall after squall cross over Rodney Bay. By 0630 the skies start to brighten and with the weather not looking any better or worse for the next number of days we’re on our way. We’ve hailed Rum Runner who left Martinique at 0400hrs. They said it’s “do-able” seas are around 6 feet and winds around 15 knots. Sounds good to us.
Rum Runner have caught up to us so we decide not to stop at the PITONS but carry on at least to St. Vincent.
This freighter passed us on the inside off St. Vincent. Interesting not an hour later the sea was full of plastic. What a mess to dodge through. From the freighter??? Who knows for sure.
By 1800hrs we’re doing 7 to 8.5 knots…YEAH; the motor is off and we’re flying. We’ve got 2.9nm to go.
1850hrs The anchor is set in 14.2 feet of water, it’s just starting to get dark and we have a wonderful surprise of being welcomed into Admiralty Bay by not only our friends Rum Runner by Cathy and Derek off Idyll Island. After a 12 hour day we are definitely in need of a rest, but we’re happy to be in Bequia.
