Delayed in St Maarten

Due to the bail breakage, the guys were forced to engine, verses sail, back to Sint Maarten. Unfortunately for them it was a rough and rainy day to be at sea. To quote my captain “It was miserable!” Meanwhile us girls continued our exploration of Saba and flew back to St Maarten, allowing us a take-off from the world’s smallest commercial airport runway.

Apparently the bail failure was related to the gooseneck damage suffered during our ocean crossing. We had no choice but to delay our departure and make repairs. We have opted to take advantage of FKG, a reputable marine rigging and fabrication shop here in St Maarten.
