Well, this passage has been one for the record books. Engine issues, gas stove issues, instrument issues, light wind that always seemed to blow from St. Martin, etc. We could have used your constant optimism for the past week.
Things changed yesterday after a 30+ knot “squall” that lasted a couple of hours. We are finally in the trades and making miles directly towards St. Martin.
Last night the skies cleared and the breeze was blowing hard. My watch from 3-6am was spectacular. 18-22 from behind, big waves, a sky filled with stars. The Big Dipper directly behind, and the Southern Cross ahead off the port bow. Great stuff!
And the perfect time for a little Pink Floyd!!
