I did the weekly SXM, Saba
, Statia, St. Kitts loop for 9 months and had no problems. Nevis's only a few miles from our favorite anchorage in St. Kitts.
The only problem we had was the scoot back to SXM in time for the Friday Jump up in Philipsburg. We sailed a lot at night but I was in bed
shortly after midnight most nights.
The best things about leaving from Philipsburg is no bridge, and you're 12 miles closer to Saba
and the other islands. The worst thing was the anchorage and surge but we spent the night at Bobby's Marina.
