Christmas Day 2014 Dawn broke at anchor in the bay at Terre de Haut which is part of the archipelago of Les Saintes (part of Guadaloupe).  By 8.00 am the AS watch recorded a temperature of 27 degs.  Our Christmas breakfast was scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, bacon and toast.  After a Bucks Fizz smoko, we […]

Following a relaxed day on the island of Dominique, where the crew were treated to a boat-tour of a swamp trail that lead to a cosy rum shack, comfortingly named the ‘Ticking Crocodile’. The trail was also a familiar location for fans of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ films, those who had seen the films […]

It’s day 4 and we have arrived in Portsmouth, Dominica! We left our anchorage in Falmouth Harbour Bay yesterday and sailed past Montserrat and then Guadeloupe overnight.  Dinner was a lovely assortment of curries, including goat, from Cookie our wonderful chef, followed by ice-cream! We’ve finally scrubbed away the smell of the stingray and tuna […]

Stores arrived throughout the day, introductions were made then we headed out to anchor at the mouth of the harbour overnight. Fishing lines were cast and so far, we have […]

Another another day in paradise! Not far to go now! (about 200ish miles or so left!) After lunch yesterday, Jay and George conducted a presentation to the voyage crew about the different lights and shapes that they might see when we go into port in a few days time. This was very informative and any […]

Thursday 11th December 2014 Yet another day in paradise! Here we are, still pootling along in the middle of the Atlantic at a speed of 4.7 knts. With each hour, we gain further miles towards our destination – getting close now! The crew (as much as they are enjoying the voyage and probably don’t want […]

Another glorious day in paradise, comfy beds, restful nights with minimal wind pushing us on at a steady 3-4 Knots and bam……the day starts again! Only on this fine day we have only 1366NM to go until the white sands and local ales await us in Antigua. The watches are now fully settled into the […]

After almost perfect sailing weather we stopped for 24 hours in Arrecife. We were moored right on the end of the breakwater with lovely views of the town and bleak surrounding volcanic hills. An island of little vegetation but of great interest to volcanologists. Some of us went for a long walk or a jog […]

Today is sweltering and the wind is very light not really keeping us as cool as we would have liked. However, the day is glorious, the sun is shining brightly and there are barely any clouds. Our compliments to the chef Dave for the delicious fruit cake for smoko and quiche for lunch. He never […]

The swell of the last three days has now subsided and we are just left with the occasional lurch as Tenacious falls in to a trough. However the sea through the port holes in the lower mess is an Atlantic blue. We have been moving under sail alone for three days, making a steady five […]

With swells of 4-5 meters we had some crew affected by the motion, most especially your scribe. After 2 days of indisposition I managed to emerge today and am catching up on the news. I am informed that much of the voyage crew spent their time off watch in their bunks yesterday, except when needed […]
