Guy is busy this morning sorting out the legal side of last night’s tradgedy and making sure that the widow is getting all the help that she can, contacting the embassy for her, finding her a hotel etc.
The rest of the fleet has departed for the run back up tp Clifton on Union Island, so that they can clear customs agian and re-renter St Vincent and the Grenadines.
I have to wait for Guy, and eventually when he returns he asks if I would be happy taking Havika back to Union on my own whilst he takes the couples 35 back. No problem, and off we go.
Anchor at Clifton again and back to the airport for the customs yet again.
Most of the other boats in the fleet have gone back up to the Tobago Cays and the hostie has organised one of the locals to put on a lobster barbeque up there. Barbaque man is going up from Clifton so I arrange to go with him in his speedboat.
I wouldn’t liike to do that sort of speed in these waters, but he must know them like the back of his hand, now where is the safest place to sit without getting soaked as he hits the waves…
Coming back at night and he really shows that he knows the waters, steering straight at a cardinal flashing away off Palm Island and then turning for Clifton as he gets abeam of another light on Union,
