St Maarten to Bermuda

event horizon spinnaker sailingEvent Horizon departed St Martin early Thursday, April 19th and after 1070nm arrived in Bermuda Thursday, April 26th. It was a much longer trip than expected - 7 days to the hour – due to light winds that were always on our bow. (It took us less than 4.5 days to sail south.) The slow speed drove my captain mad, so I tried to hide my happiness over the delay in leaving warm Caribbean waters. It was my longest passage at sea and thoroughly enjoyed. Aside from swells the first two days, it was surprisingly calm and we managed to skirt most of the rain. Frequent sail changes kept us exercised and numerous pods of dolphins and iPods kept us entertained.dolphins
