Nutcracker - Lights of St Lucia fine to port
Cabin boy writes: Lights of Martinique on stbd bow. Lights of St Lucia fine to port. 25m to run. Will the Trades have one last laugh? Having dropped to 8 knots during yesterday afternoon, with direction all over the place, they seem to be holding at. c12knots ENE'ly now. So arrival at c 06.00 local time (GMT -4). We're heading dead downwind on stbd gybe, so one last gybe as we approach Pigeon Island, pole down and 1 mile reach into Rodney Bay to finish. Will be close to dawn; would be nice to arrive in the light. And, given start on Nov 19 was 13.00 GMT, finish looks to be just before the completion of Day 22. Helluva trip.
