Diamant's departure is being held up by government red tape. The air freight was supposed to be brought in to Grenada duty free with the assistance of NADMA (National Assoc for Disaster Management) in Grenada. They have been causing problem after problem, so Monja is getting it cleared through the regular channels instead. Hopefully Diamant wil leave tomorrow now.

Prayers that Monja can get this taken care of. Sail on, Diamant!
Prayers for Northern California and the Anaheim, CA area, up in flames. So many fires started at once by 70mph winds that the fires are becoming one.
Being called the worst firestorm in state's history.

This doesn't come as a surprise. During my Navy time I was sent to Grenada with 3 US Navy Hydrofoils and my repair group of 60 US sailors and 10 US Coast Guard to work with the Grenadian government and their Navy/CG to stop the flow of drugs into the Caribbean. This was 1988. We were down there for 90 days living in tents out by the Airport. We were homeported out of Key West Fla. our home Base.

Now you would think working with the Island government, we wouldn't have a problem getting repair parts though customs. Everytime something arrived it was an issue. It took 2-3 hours a day to get these repair parts cleared. Bottom line is they wanted their "handed greased". This became a daily problem . Turned me off to the Island of Grenada . Never thought I would go back again . I did to sail on Diamant twice.
