August 1st post

Hi all,
been about 12 days so here is my update, I left Rodney bay 6pm Saturday for Carriacou had a nice evening sail and day sailing during the Sunday passing Union Island as the sun went down. Decided to down sails there as don't like entering an anchorage with sails up in the dark, motored across to Carriacou and dropped anchor with lovely electric Windlass in deep water for the first time in a long time at about 2230hrs and Susie from s/y Spirited Lady came over with a few beers and wine for herself, we drank and swapped stories till about 0100hrs and then I went to bed whilst Susie had to find her boat again.
Left all awnings off as the Regatta was at the weekend so just moved the boat in closer to the beach, anchor came up effortlessly! what a magic thing an electric windlass is! love it to bits.
couple of drink sessions and the regatta was upon us. Friday was the race around the Island, Saturday was the South coast race, Sunday was a day off on the Rum Runner to watch the Carriacou Sloops racing, this is a booze cruise and I am only going to post 1 UNO one picture some one took of me letting my hair down !!! there were lots of them.

Grenada next guys, for 'Carnival' what happens then on Monday is anyone guess
