Sister Ship

As many of you know, Event Horizon (“Eve”), is number 22 of 24 Baltic 51's built between 1979 – 1988 by Baltic Yachts Ltd of Bosund, Pietarsaari, Finland.
So you can imagine our surprise and excitement when we saw our own reflection in Marigot Bay. It was our sister ship, Alexandra. She possesses an incredible likeness to Eve beyond the signature black mast and boom, which amazed us given their 25 plus years in age. We later learned she is hull #18, her home country is France and she makes the Atlantic Trade Winds Crossing most years to winter in the Caribbean.
