Renée spent the next two days reaching out to fellow cruisers and cruising sites for suggestions on repair centers while I searched the internet and made phone calls. We were able to find a mechanic that will clean our tank and a North Sails office to look at our ongoing halyard problem. Both are located at the Marina Bas-Du-Fort which is 41nm from our current location. We scheduled for both to be serviced upon completion of our quarantine.
Rather that stay at our current anchorage which turns out is very rolly, I requested permission to relocate 5KNOTS to Pointe a Pitre, the bay just outside of the marina This way when quarantine is over we will just have a short distance to go to get to the marina. Permission was granted so we proceeded to our next anchorage. We left at 5:45am to take advantage of the calm wind and seas. We hit a top speed of 6.6 knots which is very good considering we were just using the engine. We notified Marine Security of our new location once we were safely re-anchored. This spot is much better, large open bay with plenty of room and so far no roll. We just hit our halfway mark for this quarantine, 7 more days to go. Not everybody is quarantined, we see the locals boating and sailing through the bay.
The story continues once we get our repairs completed and back on our way!
