Goodbye Caribbean!

We have now officially completed our Caribbean winter season, and are on our way to the Bahamas!

We left St. Maarten yesterday via the 4:30 bridge out of Simpson Bay Lagoon after a few days of post-regatta provisioning, converting the boat from racing to cruising mode, and had a much-needed day off on the beach.

Last night saw us sailing at an incredible 16 knots (approximately 30km/h) with just a staysail and one reef in the main sail. If we manage to hold speeds anywhere close to that, then we will arrive in Nassau by Sunday morning!
