Sail form St Lucia to Martinique

May 16th
We had an absolutely lovely sail with 10 knots of wind and fairly calm seas.  There were two small, brief squalls.  The first produced a water spout that appeared and then disappeared almost as fast. However, it was our first water spout spotting......try saying that five times fast.
Near the entrance to Le Marin, a silly/stupid mistake by me, resulted in our main sail pulling slightly out of its track at the bottom and becoming jammed.  The attempts to re-thread and raise it again didn't work while underway so we dropped it completely and motored in with it flaked - somewhat.  Later at anchor we were able to get it raised correctly, and furled.
