Mira next sailed to St. Martin from Saba – a short 4 hour sail, but a beautiful beam reach flying 9-10 knots the whole way – in late March.
We have sailed around St. Martin/St Maarten and St. Barts before, but we headed this way again for two reasons. One, Glenn needed a quiet anchorage to figure out why our generator wasn’t working, and two, it was the perfect spot to prepare for our first long overnight passage to Tortola in the BVI’s. We needed to check all of the boat systems and provision for the trip. St. Martin has wonderful grocery stores with delicious French products. I couldn’t wait to stock up!
