24thMarch – Wallilabou Bay, St Vincent

16nm, but seemed longer due to the conditions, once again bashing into it, wind on the nose. Still managed to sail most of the way though. This bay is amazing. It’s where they filmed most of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Walking through some of the old sets, and seeing the scenery that we recognise from the film was amazing. The ‘stone arch’ where they pirates where hung at the beginning of the film is right at the end of the bay. We went to it in the zodi and I got out for a photo!! Went for a walk up to the waterfall. Customs arrived at 5pm and then we had to clear out but Immigration was round the next bay. So we got in our Zodi and went to the next bay to complete our clearance. There were quite a few locals on the jetty drinking etc so Phil stayed in the Zodi and I went ashore to do the paperwork. Back to boat, showered and went ashore for dinner. Phil had curried Lambi (conch shell) and I had Creole Chicken followed by banana split. All very nice.
