We made some last minute preparations, checked out of Saint Lucia, and then headed south for Soufrière. We had a beautiful sail down, anchored in Sugar Beach, and had time to go snorkeling for an hour or so before sunset.
As the weather reports were favorable (light rain in the morning) for our sail to Bequia, Anna Marie and I got up early, weighed anchor, and headed south.
The rain turned out to be much heavier than forecast, and the winds much stronger once we got passed the lee of Saint Lucia and out to open sea.
Poor Jason was not enjoying the trip at all. He didn’t take any medicine until after it was too late. Fortunately, he slept for a good part of the ten hour trip.
The winds came and went as we past the windward side of Saint Vincent, making for a pleasurable sail at times, and a rough one at others.
By the time we got to the southern tip of the island, the wind died completely, and we had to motor the remaining few miles to Admiralty Bay in Bequai.
We dropped anchor, raised our quarantine flag, and I dinghied into the harbor to check in to the Country.
I returned to the boat, Jason and Daniel proceeded to take down the quarantine flag and raise our courtesy flag. We watched another beautiful sunset, and prepared to head into town for a much deserved dinner at one of the local restaurants.
