St Martin

The computer has died so I'm tapping this out on a tablet and it will be a short note. Arrived St Martin on 16th April after a good fast sail to windward from carriacou. Fixed many things, bought new outboard picked up new code D  sail, and greeted Oisin at the yacht club on 25th, and Merel on 28th. On 29th we sailed north from Simpsons Bay to Grand Case to get some French culture. Very, little wind but we hoisted the new Code D. It's a huge blue furling gennaker — a lightweight nylon sail for sailing downwind. 'Big Blue' is gigantic: it's the same size as the main and genoa together and should keep Anjea moving in light winds.
