It took about 45 hours, and we had easterlies 12-15 knots most of the way. The boat was a Beneteau
first 456 which goes well to weather
. The bank may get a bit rougher than normal on the weather side, but a bit less rough than normal on the lee side, but it was a pretty pleasant trip for us. The biggest problem was checking into St Lucia without a Zarpe--they are used to that in the BVI and St Marten, but not further down island. They finally accepted a fuel dock
receipt as proof that we had comedirectly from St Croix.
