Mustique

Another new island for us. Of course Mustique is known as the playground of the Rich and famous, think Mick Jagger or Princess Margaret, all started by Colin Tennant (Lord Glenconner). There are 90 or so exclusive luxury villas on the island, some of which can be rented, but they do allow passing yachts to visit. There are secure buoys in Britannia Bay, which seem expensive but your 210 EC $ does cover you for 3 days. Everywhere is very clean and well tended, the water is beautifully clear, great snorkelling straight from the boat, lots of turtles. There are several good walking trails on the map we got from the library. As well as visiting Basils Bar, we climbed up to the local village to an establish,met called The View to have lunch. And what a superb view looking out over the bay and the anchorage. Service was not speedy so plenty of time to enjoy it and a beer cost the same in in EC$ as it would in US $ at Basils. Having parted from our rally mates from World ARC we started flying our Ocean Cruising Club burgee, and have been impressed by how many fellow members have met, including Davina and Antony on Divanty in Mustique.
