Arrived in Sint-Maarten (France)

We just arrived in Sint-Maarten from St-Thomas after a 100 miles trip that took us 22 hours. This was finally the last leg of our trip east motoring against the waves and the wind. We were supposed to spend a few more days in the USVI and BVI but a good weather window showed up and we didn’t want to let it go. With stronger winds this passage could have been a nightmare. It was bumpy on the second half but not too bad. We are just happy that the travelling east is over.
