Detailed Track:

We left Antigua around 5pm after stopping at the fuel dock for filling up the water tanks, diesel and gas for dinghy to explore the
San Blas Islands. Lucia and Etienne are joining us for the sail of the San Blas. We met them in St. Pierre in Martinique last December.
They had hitch-hike sailboats from Europe across the Atlantic  and they were looking for a boat heading south.

Since we left we have been sailing with only a full main in about 18-20 kts of wind.
Until Nevis we sailed on a starboard tack and right before Nevis we jibed and change tack.
Sailing is quite comfortable with only an occasional roll due to a wave in the stern.

Leaving Jolly Harbor. Lucia (from Spain) and Etienne (from France) are joining us for the sail to the San Blas
