|Lofran Tigres Windlass|
Katherine joined Earthling on New Years Eve and since then we have been anchored in Prickly Bay, which is the busiest anchorage in Grenada. The weather has been unusual for this time of the year. It’s supposed to be dry season in the Caribbean but it has rained on and off almost every day, which put some work behind. We are looking for a weather window on Friday, today to make an overnight passage to Trinidad. You can check our crumb trail on spot connect. What’s in Trinidad? Well, Trinidadians are there and it’s a big island. I have heard less pleasant things about this Island, but I have been interested to see Trinidad for a long time. All the way down from Virgin Islands, locals have asked me if I’m from Trinidad! Now I’m interested to see why I look like a Trini. The distance is only 90 miles, so why not check it out. In addition, we are picking up a new crew member that is flying into Port Of Spain from Chicago.
The agenda for the 4th leg of Earthling adventure includes sailing west towards Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, and further to Colombia and San Blas. We will most likely stop at a couple of Venezuelan Island groups, such as Blanquilla and Ros Roques.
Just to refresh your memory, first leg of the voyage was from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico through a range of rivers (1300miles).
Second leg was from Florida to Virgin Islands through the Bahamas Islands, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico.
Third Leg was from Virgins Islands to Grenada through Leewards and Windwards, and now Earthling is ready for the fourth leg. All I’m praying for is fair winds and good health for Earthling and the crew aboard.
Love from Prickly Bay
