Today we left St. Lucia, BWI on a passage of 280nm to St. Martin, FWI. After enjoying the completion of our trans-Atlantic crossing and all festivities at the conclusion of the ARC we dropped Gustavo and Roland off to take a taxi tour of St. Lucia before they pick up their flights back home tonight. We started out the day at anchor with a sunrise breakfast followed by one last swim in the 29c water.
We had a nice time sailing around the BVI’s but now it’s time for our return journey back to St. Martin. It’s an 80nm distance of open water to cross so it’s a significant trip. We’ve been watching the weather window not because of any storms but to see if we can get wind from the right direction so we can sail back rather than have to motor like we did on the way over.
Well, seems only proper that the first article on this website is about an upcoming sailing trip in the Caribbean. Starting in St. Martin (Sint Maarten) we will pick up a charter and spend some time enjoying the cruising life for a while. Getting away from winter in Europe will a be nice change however things are just starting to move into Spring around here.
