We’ve spent the past few weeks hanging around Martinique. A few days were waiting to see if the potential hurricane heading towards Trinidad was going to affect us. As it turned out it became a tropical storm and although Trinidad copped wind and rain it was no danger to even Grenada, a fair way further south than us. We stayed at Anse Mitan then tried to visit Trois Islets but the holding was poor and it seemed to be a dumping ground for abandoned boats – not sure why but nearly all the anchored boats were stripped down and in very sad repair. Bit depressing. So we overnighted in Anse a L’Ane and sailed to Marin. Here we caught up with Dave and Anna on their new boat,Tamarisk. They’ve gone from a 38’ to 56’ which they picked up in Fort Lauderdale and sailed back. Plenty of new stuff to get used to! And lots to spend at chandleries……they bought a collapsible dinghy back on the plane from England as oversize luggage and got it through. It’s hard to imagine when you see it expanded. But then people cart around double bases, kite surfers and golf gear. We’re going across the bay to Sainte Anne for a bit today then off to St Lucia.
