Tobago Cays December 2015

17 days after leaving Las Palmas we arrived in St Lucia and were welcomed by the Arc Team with a bowl of fruit and rum punches.  After a good meal ashore we collapsed into our bunks for a good nights sleep.  Since then we have explored some of the area and other islands spending the festive season visiting Bequia, Tobago Cays and Martinique.  We are now back in St Lucia preparing for our departure on the World Arc leaving the marina on Saturday 9th January 2016 setting sail for Santa Marta in Columbia, a 4 day trip (815 miles) with full crew of 7 aboard.

    As I sit here in the UK floods and rain lashing down you are bringing a little light into my day!
    Good job Andy, Gina and the crew of ‘Into the Blue’.
    Great photos and we hope you have an idyllic time on the next steps.
    Looking forwards to your next post.
    Love Ashley 7 Angie

      Thanks guys, Currently in Santa Marta, Colombia, what a great place. People are very friendly and the quality of everything here is very good and very reasonable. Stocking up over the next couple of days as we leave here on Wednesday for San Blas Islands.

    As I sit on a train at 7am on the way to London having de-iced the car at 6.30am, you Mr Hilton popped into my mind! Well it never did make sense. Happy new year to you all. Photos look amazing. Stephen
