Location: Rodney Bay, St Lucia

Early departure from our mangrove Med moor to Rodney Bay marina. 12:00 provisions brought on board, fuel taken on, and propane purchased. All hands back on board at 13:00. Re-anchored outside the lagoon and enjoyed a clear water swim and talent show to earn back stray items found adrift on deck. Dinner was a fantastic feast produced by Beaker. Her falafel, bean salad, and couscous were among the best prepared in my tenure onboard. The tropical fruit crumbles and custard dessert demonstrated her galley proficiency and pride in craftswomanship. After dinner, a discussion of tidal currents, plotting current vectors, and leeway rounded off a stellar day.
