The wind carried us over 90% of the way up from St Maartens a great passage!!...but then at midnight last night we had to switch to engine power as Mother Nature had decided to breathe more gently and from the wrong direction (South-West)….and that change would just not carry Sea Mist effectively any further. All went smoothly with the formalities in St Georges mid morning today and a couple of hours later we had sailed the 20 miles to the west end of Bermuda – Hamilton - where we are anchored amongst a few little attractive islands in Hamilton Harbour.


Next steps will be to study weather for the passage to Newport so that we can make a plan for that next big event soon to kick off as we take Sea Mist the final legs to our home and native land – Canada – the true north strong and free….with a little visiting time enroute to explore our friendly neighbour to the south…the good old U S of A. ……..look out we’re coming!!
