As we said good byes to Tanicka, Kiki and Robo in St Lucia, we were keen to move on to another island as we were missing them a lot!

Martinique surprised us. It very different to the other Caribbean islands. Main reason - it is a part of France  - A visit to Decathlon,...

My sister Tanicka, niece Kiki and her dad Robo (TKR) arrived at the end of March to join us for 2 weeks in St Lucia. We were so excited to see them! We sailed to Marigot Bay from Bequia in a long passage, passing the majestic Pitons on the coast of St Lucia.

Once in the...

No words needed, just a few pictures! So happy she visited us in St Lucia!

Our stay in St Lucia, which lies between the Islands of St Vincent and Martinique, was rather different to our usual cruising experience. Normally we would either anchor (this is free), sometimes picked up a mooring buoy (not expensive, but does add up), very occasiona...

We were all looking forward to our passage North to St Lucia despite knowing that the wind was going to be gusting over 30 knots and pretty much on our nose and the swell between the islands was going to be Magnificent ( eg scary:)). Yes, we were going to meet up with...

We arranged to meet our great friends from SY Dutch at the Chatham Bay in Union Island (St Vincent and the Grenadines) for a few days before we would all head in different directions. 

Chatham bay is a huge bay, protected by high hills on all sides. It looked stunning a...

We are in the anchorage in Grenada called Clarkscourt bay. It has all the important facilities a cruiser needs:

1. Rum shop/bar

2. Rum distillery nearby

3. French-Canadian deli that sells sausages, french bread, wine and ice


Ok, these 'facilities' make our life easi...

“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!''

I really enjoy this Dr Seuss book! It is so optimistic and encouraging. This book comes to my mind often - when we make important decisions in life or when we just go exploring places we visit :).

Yesterday we went trekki...

I have had The Killers song in my head today for some reason ' Are We human, or are We dancer' and so it inspired the title of my blog today! Purely because it rhymes....kind of!

We do get mistaken for CRUISE SHIP / Superyachts tourists all the time.... and with that co...

Home-schooling on Antares has taken slightly different format in the last month or so. Granny and Granddad and Uncle James arrived in Barbados for Christmas and New Year and with them we did a lot of exploring in Barbados and Bequia. And it was super!

We explored the gu...

My foraging 'addiction' has started to develop since an early age in Slovakia. I was really lucky. Both my parents loved gardening and also loved to take us walking in the mountains. My sister and myself learned how to care for all types of fruit trees and vegetables,...

All pancakes counted to ensure a fair share among the crew!!

13 days and 10 hours - that was a speedy and enjoyable crossing in our Moody 44!

Factors that made this possible?

We started at the right time in the right place - Simon chose a good weather window, where the wind forecast for was 15 knots for the first week, a nice trad...

Thinking about crossing the Atlantic ocean back in Scotland and even once we started sailing down the coast of Europe did make me worry. Mostly it was to do with the weather and also the length of the crossing. Although we chose good time of the year to cross and provi...
