One reason of many why we stopped in St.Martin was to pick up friends. Ines and Andi will be sailing with us to some places in the leeward islands. We're happy to have them on board - Andi is a fantastic chef/ handyman and Ines helps me with some sailing theory and practice advise. A perfect match! To be our guests one has to be very flexible in terms of date and location. As we sail without a fixed schedule, guided by the weather, it is very difficult for us to plan far in advance. For our guests this was not a problem as they booked the flight from Miami on a short notice.

We had to wait out a blow for the last couple of days and spent the time on the boat anchored in Marigot Bay, St.Martin. That gave us the time to relax, doing some stuff on the boat, strolling around town and chat with our friends after a long time. But tomorrow we'll finally set sail again and head towards St.Barths. There are still some high seas predicted and winds up to 20 kts but as we now have two experienced sailors more on board we hope for a nice sail!
