Then Grand Case yellow flag and a car rental for clearance, shopping and the usual bars (Lagoonie's, the bridge opening and then ribs at Barnacle's). See you there!

The French Bridge is Hors de Combat AGAIN (IT RAINED!!!!) It has not been opening for about a week now

Re: St. Martin Itinerary

I heard that parts are once again being flown in from Martinique (they probably used LIAT, so the parts are now probably safe in Bali...)

SO BLOOODY TRUE Lost In Another Terminal says it all

We watched them only load on one of our two very distinctive sailing bags in Antigua

When I made a fuss on boarding on the tarmac before getting onto the plane the captain came out of the cockpit and told me hand on heart they were both on board

Arriving in STT only one bag on the plane - my partners - for three / four days i wore her T shits and her shorts.

I think the French bridge was HdC for a few months last year about the same time BUT then we only had the Dutch bridge to pass through now we have the causeway swing bridge as well

OWELL

Fun in Paradise

Re: St. Martin Itinerary

Only 3 weeks away from start of trip. We will for sure be going to Anquilla, St. Barts, and couple of spots on St. Martin, but what I really am hoping for is settled weather for Saba.
Does anyone know how Ladder Bay and Wells Bay are typically in early July if winds are E to ESE below 20? Hope to get back there and will most certainly have to make the call when down there, but looking to understand what to expect.
