Les Saintes

I did a day sail to Les Saintes. That is, I used the engine all the way, even if there was wind towards the end. I learned the hard way how the trade wind (from E) can turn (to SE) and increase in strenght (from 7-8 m/s to 12-13 m/s) when going round the end of an island. In this case the southern tip of Guadelope.

Anyway, I arrived here and found a place to anchor (deep…). I stayed on the boat and slept and now on the Sunday morning, I went for sightseeing. The town Bourg des Saintes, is not big, but commerce flourishes! Lots of boutiques, small shops and restaurants. There are a lot of boats and tourists here.
