We decided to motor to the French side in the morning pick up some fuel and head to Tortola……….Well that was the plan, as we found out the French side does not have a fuel dock open on Sunday. So we had to race back for the 0900 bridge opening so we could get fuel and then hung out a did some laundry and traded yacht club burgee’s til the 1600
Stowed everything and departed to Tortola at 1706

On the hook in Simpson Bay waiting for the bridge to open at 1600 into the Lagoon, so we could get fuel. Decided not to go inside as we would be trapped in the lagoon til morning.

Depart Dominica at 0600 under power as there was no wind.
at 0715 we shut down the engine and set full main and headsail
1015 we reduce the headsail to 100 from 135.
The day started out with a plan to go to Guadeloupe but the wind died and shifted twice while in the lee of the island so we decided to push on to St Maarten as the see was flt and the wind light after clearing the island.
A beautiful night for a sail………well motor anyway.
