We really liked this Island and we need to make it back next season for the Classic Sailboat Race. Great hikes with Bill & Ann; fun hosting with Dave and Trudy, Richard & Lavinia. We depart for Martinique and spend one night there on the hook. Ken goes to shore only long enough to clear us in and to clear us to the next port which is Trinidad. We then do a double over night to Trinidad. It's a good call I think. We are learning to manage larger seas. We are finding 4-6' seas are fine if the direction and period are right. Down here these are "mild" seas so we've gotten a bit used to it and now it is "not that big a deal".
