Leaving Grenada

Today, sob, is our last day in lovely Grenada. We're about to dinghy ashore to clear out with the Customs office and to meet Harry the driver from 'Meat and Meet', a wonderful butcher's and deli based in Whisper Cove, further along the coast. We went there yesterday so our delivery of local chicken, beef and eggs will arrive ready to go straight into the fridge aboard.

After going alongside the little Prickly Bay Marina for some diesel and water we'll set off for Bonaire at about 1.00pm. The voyage is 400nm so will take us just under 3 days so we should arrive in there on Monday. Very sadly, Matt & Charlotte can't set off with us today; after waiting for parts for their gearbox to be sent from Sweden, a whole new gearbox was supplied and fitted under warranty yesterday but Matt reports a 'chattering' noise which the mechanic isn't happy with. So they have more frustrating waiting but will, we hope, catch up with us in Panama.

So it's Maunie and Stormvogel together again for an ocean passage. We'll update the blog from sea.
