Passaging Again…

Okay, it was time to passage again after a short but thoroughly enjoyable visit to Saba.  So, we dropped our mooring in the 10-12 foot seas and headed for St. Kitts and Nevis.  We made it in about 7 hours of sailing again.  For those who are following, we are trying to make it to every second island as we go south.  This allows us to sail a good amount during the day meaning no overnight passages, but we still make some progress down south.  We will visit the missed islands on the way north when we head back to the BVI for March and the next set of visitors coming down.

So, having made it to St. Kitts we did a quick tour of the town of Basseterre after we checked in with Customs and Immigration.

Here’s an example of their Circus that is modelled after the one in London England.

Where are the Frazers? Did they fall off the ocean?

Okay, it’s been a little too long since we last posted.  My apologies.  That’s a combination of being on an 18 hour passage, needing to recuperate, not having internet access and then sailing to a new bay where we are not docked at a marina visiting with Caroline’s brother and sister-in-law.  It’s a most awesome marina that is gorgeous and has all the amenities of a resort if you’re in the marina.  Woo hoo.  Anyway, more on that later, with pictures.

And, speaking of pictures, I have a number of pictures that I will get loaded up in the next day or two.  And, hopefully a number of stories.

So, for now, just know that our first big passage was a success.  Grueling but safe and successful.

Hope you are well.  Please drop us a line to let us know how you’re doing.

Talk more soon.
