Today we had a pretty good sail from Les Saintes off the south side of Guadeloupe to Deshaies on the NW side of the main island of Guadeloupe. The 34nm passage took a little over 6 hours of which we had to motor for 2 hours due to lack of wind. Here are the usual plots...

The island's leeward side is quite scenic with lots of green hills and a number of settlements from villages to small towns. The rain showers love to pour rain over the island, often leaving little to fall on those sailing to leeward.
