Roseau, Dominica

We had a fabulous sail from Fort de France. We left at 0700 and the wind was 10-15 knots ENE. Even on the leeward side of Martinique we were able to travel between 6-7 knots. The passage between the islands saw the wind build to 20 knots and 1 meter seas. We averaged 8.5 knots across the 25 miles of open ocean. One of the better days we have had on the trip North!

 The toothed whale skeleton.
 Roseau waterfront just south of town
 The anchorage
We rented a mooring in Roseau, the capital of Dominica, and settled down to a glorious sunset. In the morning we went for a run and found this skeleton of a whale in the Anchorage restaurant. Only a few of the parts were plaster.
