Before we could leave Grenada weekends and late nights were in order to rebuild the RIB, affectionally known as "M". Nils painstakingly grafted to make her stronger than before. Her launch date was continually delayed but what an exciting day it was when we put her back in the water and opened up the throttle to blast around the bay. The sky was overcast and it threatened rain but we didn't care, celebrating with sundowners in the cockpit, exhilarated.
The weather had been unsettled with us bouncing around tied to the dock. Unfortunately this is typical of Le Phare Bleu. It was with a sense of relief to depart and drop our anchor in a bay nearby, Whisper Cove. The freedom from being tied to a pontoon with the added bonus of swimming from the boat, made us realise that we are not marina animals. Several days spent chilling and stocking up on last minute fresh produce, we set sail for Carriacou. We had a fast, lively sail up the east coast of Grenada and arrived in Tyrrel Bay on the south-west Coast of Carriacou in the early afternoon.
