good to know Bob......while we are in St. Maarten my wife wants to visit the resorts on Anguilla that we have stayed at in the past (Cap-Jaluca/Cuisinart). How fitting if I can go in the Sonic......

We missed the KLM 747 landing by about a half hour. That would have been so cool to see.

We are now settled into Falmouth Harbour on the south coast of Antigua and have nice rooms overlooking the harbor. There is a really cool Wally sailing yacht in the marina.
Seas were still about 2 M so just ran at a comfortable speed and arrived mid afternoon.
I will post some pics later but not many as we were on the open seas most of the time. Strange, there were no other boats traveling between St Maarten / St Bartt's and Antigua that we could see.
The "SPOT" tracker shows our routing from BVI nicely. http://share.findmespot.com/shared/f...JbWs8tmcPVS9Vs
