After a wonderful couple of weeks at sea, the crew are enjoying some island time… St Pierre in Martinique has all the charm of a sophisticated small town in France, but the sunshine and palm-fringed beaches of the Caribbean. Mount Pelle, is the islands volcano, and it’s still active – the last eruption was in 1902 and completely destroyed St Pierre – the current town was built up again from those ruins. The scenery is dramatic and lush and the anchorage is deep. It’s the perfect spot to sail small boats, and swim-calls at the end of the work day are pretty popular too!
