I know how Noah felt! The downpour has broken.

A travel blog entry by oldgumby

The downpour broke about two hours ago so I took a drive up to the French side of the Island to find the Restaurant where I'm meeting my mate Dominic for dinner. It would be pretty useless to describe the rain in millimetres really, metres is probably ...

After a very lumpy night we set sail rather trepidly with big winds and seas forecast. First 2 hours were not pleasant, however Ruthie the lure caught us our biggest Tuna yet! Shortly after seas calmed down and the sail soon became very bearable and ...

Yesterday evening (Monday) was a mixture of good, bad and odd. The "good" was the Alladin show which was absolutely terrific. It was a version of the Disney cartoon and it ripped along brilliantly, and some of the special effects were jaw droppingly ...

Had a bit of bad news today in that the Autopilot system is on the way out. Best estimate is it will work for one week to six months. Problem is that the humidity and resulting condensation over time have caused corrosion to start forming on some ...

I was told St. Maarten would be the best port out of all our stops however because every other port visited were unimpressive, my expectations for St. Maarten were set very low. With low expectations, St. Maarten was surprisingly a really fun stop. ...

Well! What a weekend. You'd think these girls had been locked up all their lives and had been suddenly set free and told to "Go for it"! AND THEY DID! Friday Night was a warm up with dinner at Lagoonies which gave all the Ladies the opportunity to suss ...

Some of the work you see done on yachts here is legitimately describable as Art Work. The thing about it here is that much of this standard of work is affordable to the average yacht owner whereas back home it would be well out of the price range of all ...

Finally we are back in the water again but it wasn't a simple process. We missed three Causeway Bridge openings due to complications with the sea lift so I had to then wait for 1.5 hours for the next opening. Without a Bimini this meant the Cockpit was ...

Hardest ascent so far from 630m to 1800m. Also, most of it was in thick cloud and one endless stony zig zag road felt like "the road to purgatory" for Felix. At the top we were rewarded by a tiny house selling Brebis (sheep) cheese by a couple who looked ...
