Sailing Adventures

Together with some friends and Jason we sailed Ocean Nomad from Antigua directly to Carriacou in the Grenadines. This wasn't just a simple cruise..... We were delivering a cargo of 6,500 lbs of lead which will be used as ballast on the new sloop. This is the first time i have been on a computer in 10 days or so. We also took part in the Carriacou Regatta which we didn't do particularly well in before going to Grenada to drop off David Mendes and to pick up Tony. David was going back to med school. Now it's just Jason and Tony with me sailing up the island chain enjoying the breeze and the Caribbean! Very early today we left Union Island where we had a lovely afternoon yesterday bound for the Tobago Keys. Passing very close to Palm island we got a good luck at the lovely resort there. The keys were as beautiful as i had imagined and after relaxing a while there we set sail for Bequia. It was blowing 25 knots and the crossing was a wet one. Bequia is unique and we enjoyed a proper island tour as tourists. Tomorrow we will check the weather and go north stopping wherever we are meant to stop. I am loving this adventure and would do it full time if it wasn't for me missing mykl so much.
