We are weather morons. We sat in Deshaies - a lovely place in which to sit - waiting for an opportune time to head north. We were in NO HURRY. Loads of time before Carrie and Chevy arrive.
So we spotted a weather window - one day only - and decide to go. Ominously, as we left, another Canadian boat waved goodbye, and said, "See you in Antigua. We are going tomorrow when the weather is better." We scratched our heads a bit. We thought we had done our research. Well of course, the forecast had changed over night and the next day would have been much better.
We had a bit of a thrash heading up. We were a bit tight on the wind, making 4.5 knots and our trip would have taken about 10 hours at that speed. So we motor sailed. Made it in 8 hours.
So now we are here... need to varnish... and that's what we are doing.
