St Martin to Bermuda - Day 1

Before we had even lifted the anchor, my captain and I were commenting about our screaming feet. After months of happily walking free or relaxing in flip-flops, wearing what used to be comfortable sailing shoes now felt like footwear prison. What wasn't said out loud, but I know we were both thinking it, was that this is only the first of many readjustments we will be making as we return to New England.

By 8am we were under full sail. We had comfortable sailing conditions for our fist 24-hours, just the right amount of wind on our beam and moderate seas. No wildlife sightings.

Days run 180nm - approx 670nm yet to go.
