January 7, 2011... Martinique -- East Coast Transit

Up early Friday morning to start from Ste. Anne for the east coast. Weather good, winds great -- out of the east. We tacked our way around the southeast coast and found a good sailing angle to go north. Centerboard down, Anhinga cut through the Atlantic swells, throwing spray in our faces. We sailed all the way up the coast to the red buoys marking the Vauclin passage through the reefs. From there we motorsailed the rest of the way between the reefs and turned into Cul-de-Sac Fregate. Finding the anchorage north of Ilet Long, we set the anchor and relaxed. We made it!
Ilet Long, Cul-de-Sac Fregate: 14d36.673'N 60d51.553'W
