Rounding Saint Martin
The light came relatively quickly. It was behindbig cloud, it felt like a giant Soulage painting infront of us: big black traits of clouds with somelight behind, shining through, fighting its way... Andthen finally, suddenly the sun. Warm and glittery onthe sea giving a fabulous scenery of Saint Martin'shills in the background as we were approaching. Thenight was up and down with the wind, we had hoped fora more even wind throughout...
Right now we arepassing the south side rounding starboard towards thewest side of the island of Saint Martin. We sail at 13knots or so with a 14 knots of speed of wind. We havenow sailed around 220 miles since the start. In a fewhours we will have done 24h of racing. Breakfast wasserved on deck for those on watch. Funny, seems theyforgot to bring my cappuccino! ;-)
