What a wonderful passage from St Lucia to Martinique.  One of our best sails despite the strong winds and big seas (2.5m).  We had 3 reefs in the main, full stay sail and very heavily reefed yankee but still we managed to do the trip averaging 5 knots.   We were sailing up wind but managed to avoid tacking!   Great helming from Humphrey Hydrovane.   Today reminded us both why we love sailing!
