Looks like you are having a blast! Wish we were going to be able to make a FMO run this year, but the schedules just didn't line up. Maybe next year

I was gonna say this as well, but you are definately on my hero list, and it is a short list.

Take care and God bless for being able to do it.

1) Saying goodbye to David ( OSO Expat ) and Chrissann before leaving for St Maarten from BVI on Monday afternoon. The 90 mile crossing took 3hrs averaging only 30 MPH in 3 meter waves. There were absolutely no other boats out there making the crossing on Monday. I knew I just had to make that crossing and once out there travel would be much easier. Forecast is looking great for the rest of the trip.

2) Approaching St Maarten. I could see the Island 36 miles out. Great visibility.

3) There were at least 24 Yachts well over 100 ft in the marina. I felt kinda small. LOL

4) Helm with "SPOT" perched on top.

5) Simpson Bay Marina where Team PREDATOR is until tomorrow. Leaving for Antigua by noon or shortly after in just 2 meter seas. LOL Check SPOT if you have a chance.
