Our sail to Bequia is all about current, against us of course. After full moon the current is the strongest and that’s what we notice. We are going very slow but after a while the wind is improving and we are going very fast. Yes, the Fairy Queen is in her element and her crew too 🙂 🙂 . The last part we motor to Bequia and drop anchor there just in front of Princes Margareth Beach. It is already low season in Bequia, every day more boats leave.
We are not doing very much over here, we just enjoy the calm blue water, clean the hull, have a swim, do a round with the cano and lets Daffodil do our washes. When the boat picks up our wash, Timm Wright, the photographer, asks us if he may make pictures with his drone for the flyer of Daffodil, well sure, the pictures are great.
After a while it’s time to go further, to Carriacou, a perfect sail. We have 15 to 20 knots of wind a little from the back, it’s a sail out of the book, well if you can say it like that. We arrive at Tyrell Bay, clearance is a piece of cake and the food at Slipway is perfect. We also make a hike to Hillsborough, over the mountain and back trough the mangrove bushes ending up at Paradise Beach. The walk is not to hard, finding the small path to go over the mountain is a bit difficult but after that it shows his own way. And of course this time also some small things to do. A bit of needle work, a cover for the feet of the mast to protect the rubber, a cover for the fuel tank in the dinghy and also a windscoop for our small windows which we have in our hull. We can open them and then the wind can funnel inside. The pattern I have received from Gayle (Wildbird) is perfect so one done five to go. Tomorrow we are heading for Greneda where we have an appointment to change our forestay and our new coal brushes will also arriving there. Service from Rutland, well done. But before we go we are having a drink at Mr. Curly. Cheers 🙂 🙂 .
