Arrived in USVI (again).

We arrived in Charlotte Amalie on the island of St-Thomas in the US Virgin Islands from Marigot in St-Martin on February 22nd, 2012 after a passage of 107 nautical miles (199 km) that took us 21 hours for an average speed of 5.1 knots. Note that we underestimated the speed of Chocobo in this passage and we had to significantly slow down to avoid arriving in St-Thomas during the night and to reach Charlotte Amalie right after sunrise. Without slowing down our average speed would have been around 6.0 knots.
