St Martin to BVI Virgin Gorda

April 12 – 13

Jackie’s first watch, sunset into the darkness.

The overnight passage across was quiet, well, somewhat.  A vessel appeared to be heading straight toward us based on lights, etc., and I turned the wrong direction to avoid.  It happened to be a fairly large vessel under tow, and we yanked Frank out of his slumber to assist with course corrections.  A nearby boat decided that this would be a good time for a fireworks display, which made the maneuvering even more complicated in the midst of all the excitement.

Frank’s overnight watch entailed dodging around thunder storms.

Otherwise, the quarter moon lit the way with calm following seas.  No wind so no sail.
