From St. Kitts to St. Martin

Leaving at 06:10, we arrived at 17:15 with one of our fastest transits. The wind was SE20-25 during the morning. Waves were down on the leeward, west side of St. Kitts. But as soon as we went beyond its protection, we found ourselves in 6-8' seas with a 10' swell, and white-caps added for excitement. 'Julia Max' was going 7.5-8.0 knots over the ground. We had a single-reefed main, reefed mizzen, and our working jib working together nicely. During the afternoon the winds reduced to SE 18-20, affecting boat speed to 6.5 knots. We had a full main up in the afternoon, with a reefed mizzen and our tiny working jib on a broad reach. It was a sunny day, and our boat was up to the challenge. We did 78 miles in 11 hours: averaging 7 knots!!!
