CAptain's Mate of the Month

The CA's amazing APP CAptain's Mate is available exclusively and free to CA members. However, we're keen to share some of its attributes and first-hand knowledge & some 'as live' reports with all of our followers - members and non-members alike. So, we're selecting our 'CAptain's Mate of the Month' for the next few months! This is just an example of the hundreds of new reports submitted every month.


January 2020:

Baie du Francois, Martinique: A quick weave through the well-marked reef brings you to this well protected bay. The main attraction is the Carrefour next to Leader Price next to the DIY store. You can take the dinghy up the canal and tie up to a palm tree or a lamp post right next to the car park. The river bank is a bit muddy but, a bit of selective stepping and, you won't be ankle deep. This is still a long dinghy ride (in our 5hp dinghy) so try and anchor closer in for this trip. We got caught in a rain shower on the way back but still managed to keep the baguettes dry! You will have most of the bay to yourself so, no waiting for an anchorage hole.
