Day’s Run – 20 March, 2016

North bound in the Caribbean Sea, all sails set and the sun is shining.  Bound from Grenada for Anguilla, we’re sailing inside the curve of the Windward and then the Leeward Islands; keeping far enough offshore to avoid the wind shadows of the high islands, but close enough in to pick up the fair current that runs north a couple of leagues off.

After three weeks island time exploring Martinique, Dominica, Grenada and the Grenadines, it’s good to be at sea again.  We’re expecting a passage of around four days.
