Saba – First Glimpses

Here, we are on our passage from St. Martin to Saba.  The passage took about 6 hours.  For the first short part of it we were on a run (the winds were from behind).  But, then we spent the rest of the voyage heading to wind.  I think that Caroline is beginning to wonder when we’re going to actually sail the other way!  More on that in another post.  On our short run we did end up getting up to 9.5 knots an hour (almost 18 km/hr).  That’s likely the fastest we’ve ever sailed Legend.
