Brisk down wind sail for 5nm. to Clarkes Court Bay. Met up with Whiskers, Where II, Sea Otter, Tia Anica, Night Hawk, Dignity.

Clarkes Court Bay is where the Book "Embarrassment of Mangoes" was set for the author's summer stop over in Grenada.

Will stay a while. After Grenada Carnival we plan to move on to Trinidad to wait out the rest of hurricane season and get boat maintenance done.
