Secret Smile set off from Marigot Bay with our friends Julie and Rob on board for the short tack up to Rodney Bay. We had some quite strong gusts and a lively trip that made us reef down to 2 reefs in the main and one on the genoa. Anchoring took a few attempts because of the rocky floor before we found good holding.
The next morning we went ashore to wander about Pigeon Island and have drinks at the waterside cafe. We then walked along the island to see the dramatic Atlantic coast side of the island. We also walked along the beach at Sandals resort. That night we got together with “Tiny Dancer” and her crew for a beach BBQ and jam session. In the morning we snorkelled from our boat and found an amazing reef. We tried Mandy’s new underwater camera out and will be keeping a separate entry of the different fish we see along the way in this blog.
That evening 39 cruisers got together at a local bar for a social (This was organised by Steve and Cindy from “Destiny”). There was much drinking and eating as well as the now inevitable band jam. It was time to move on so our friends can see more of the island. This time we were heading south.
