[Captains Blog] Grenadines

Last night we actually made it up to the Grenadines, dropped anchor in a most idyllic spot, had a celebratory barbecue, sundowner cocktail, and then someone stole the dinghy at 7:30 pm. We called for help from our nearby sailing neighbours, Swedes who also nearly lost their dinghy, but for the fact that their outboard was temperamental. We gave chase and scoured the area by torchlight trying to find the thieves (yes plural since the guy who stole our boat couldn't get our engine started, and was towed away by his accomplice) and take the boat back. We got it back after nearly an hour of searching - someone had 'found' it, probably expecting to get a reward, which they clearly didn't. Paradise lost.
