After a very scenic drive from the airport, we arrived at Marigot Bay where Vela was anchored. We arrived a couple of days early in order to explore St. Lucia. Island Windjammers arranged a day tour of the island which was a welcome introduction.
The ship is a beauty. You can check out the details here but if I remember correctly, Vela has 8500 square feat of sail and can really move!
Well appointed but cozy. Bunks were very comfortable.
