Martinique (Wiebe Radstake)

After an amazing week in Martinique where we worked together with Les Fréres de la Cote, unloaded empty barrels swimming, loaded full rum barrels swimming and had a good party together with our colleagues from Gallant Blue Schooner company it was time to set sail to the next island: Grenada!
I would like to thank Raphael and Guillaume for the help for Tres Hombres!
With 7 new people on board we are a new group now. After pumping the anchor, setting all sails and doing some sail training we were slowly getting into the rhythm of the sea. Behind the islands St. Lucia and St. George there is only little or no wind: a very good way to teach bracing, taking, gybing and using every breeze of wind to get out of the shade of the islands.
48 hours later we arrived in Grenada. We are now anchoring just outside the harbor of St. George's. People still know us here from our cargo program which we run together with Grenada Chocolate Company. At the moment I'm working together with agents and customs and immigration to clear in and get the ship into the harbor to unload some organic goods from Europe for a local restaurant here. We keep you updated!
