The threat of reinforced trades at 20 to 30 knots and a week of rain sent us scurrying North to the sheltered anchorage [ and fleshpots ] of Bequia.

We loved cracking along at 8 knots on a sparkling day under all plain sail with the spray from the bow wave providing the occasional fleeting private rainbow.

We left behind the RAF crew
who were doing some serious winter training aboard their 67 ft steel boat called Discoverer of Hornet. Apparently the Navy and Army have sister ships.

Dizzy definitely does not like sailing
and needed some serious TLC on arrival.

We enjoyed exploring Union Island
and awarded this the REALLY REALLY RED ROOF prize.

After our exertions of the day it was back on board in time
to beat the mosquitoes and catch the sunset.
