Capibara - Barbuda - Being at anchor versus being in a marina

This week has been a very emotional week for us. Saturday morning, we were contacted by our good friend, Margaret, who told us that she and husband had been attacked on their boat the previous evening, and that her husband, Roger, had died. We were shocked by the news, and it still seems very surreal to us.

Capibara - Christmas in the Carribbean

Capibara - Christmas in the Carribbean

To arrive in Martinique has turned out to be a bit of an anti-climax for both of us, even though we barely talked about anything else during the crossing or before for that matter. Martinique hasn't live up to our expectations, which for my part have been have been completely off. I thought I had read somewhere that Martinique and especially the main city Fort-de-France was full of high-end and luxury brand shops, so I imagined Martinique to be something like the French Riviera with and island flavour. I do wonder where I've picked that up, because Fort-de-France couldn't be less like Cannes or Nice!

Should a vessel sink or catch fire you could face the reality of having to get into a life-raft. Liferafts are often the last resort for survival in such circumstances. Liferafts are small, cramped and conditions inside are cold, wet and uncomfortable.
