A whale of a time in Bequia?

Back in Bequia

I’ve made a quick stop in Bequia to wait out some more nasty weather…  It’s this season’s recurrent theme…. Bad weather! No storms, just too much wind.

What’s too much wind? For me it’s forecasts of 30kts. Not that my yarmouth23 isn’t capable of handling the conditions, it’s just that I don’t enjoy it… Playing sailor in 30kts plus is fun when you do it for a few hours… Not when you have to do it for several days! Trust me on this, I’ve been there….

Playing loner at the whale boner....

Unfortunately there always seems to be too much wind in the southern Caribbean. If only I were further north… I’ll just have console myself with yet another alcoholic refreshment…

Nice and calm in the bay at Bequia

I must admit that there are worse places in the world to be stranded a few days….
