Leaving St Martin - again
06 January 2010
I see it's anowing again (still) in Rochester....
I've have spent the last 5 days since Beckie left preparing the boat for the next chapter. I will be leaving St Martin probably on Thursday to go down island. The plan as it looks right now is to be in the area of St Vincent by the 23rd of Jan to pick up Beckie for her next little taste of the Islands. We're planning on visiting Bequia, Union Island and Tobago Cay. I will island hop my way down (solo). The first island I will aim for is Antigua, about 90 miles from St Maarten. After Antigua the rest of the islands are only about 45 miles apart. The winds here have been a little flucky. Been mostly SE, with more S than E. Not the Christmas winds which are the usual fare here. About a 100 miles south of here the winds are back to the normal E trades so the sailing should be a little more reaching..... We'll see how it goes.
Anyhow, I am ready to leave St Marten and start out on my next adventure.
I'll leave the SPOT on for ya.
oh, in case you missed it, new pics in the gallery.
