Another wonderful French island, with baquettes delivered to the boat every day, wonderful French cheese and wine BUT lots of wind, which made our anchorage in Les Saintes very uncomfortable. Another big fort – this one a French fort. The sea between Les Saintes and Dominica was the site of one of the major naval battles in history, between the French and English. It is all very important American history, and the assistance the Colonial forces received from the French  but too lengthy to discuss here. After two windy days in the Saints, we sailed north to Deshaies – the place with the best dinghy dock of all, and waited for a weather window to head north.
