This journey was the first one I did enjoying the pleasures of cruising around in my catamaran as all I did until now was working on it or moving the ship around for others to work on it... 2 friends from Belgium (Dimitri and Pierre) flew over to accompany me. Although the duration was short we enjoyed our journey and had nice weather.

First we spent one day visiting Martinique by car. We visited the east coast and the center.

East coast

Then our journey brought us by boat from Martinique straight to Union Island (St Vincent and the Grenadines). We got there in 20 hours sailing. We then got back by performing some island hopping... This is our journey (Martinique - Union Island - Tobago Cays - Bequia - St Vincent - Martinique):

Here are some of our pictures...

We finished my friend's holiday by visiting the west coast of Martinique. We more specifically visited St Pierre, which was the capital of Martinique until 1902 when a volcano eruption destroyed the city and killed nearly everyone ! The legend says only one person survived (although not true): he was in jail...
