I left St Kitts
(White House Bay) and Nevis last week before the swells hit, but I would not recommend Saba in any kind of swell at all as it is unprotected and you will be rocking and rolling all night. If you really need to head
out, then a better alternative might be Statia - it isn't too far, is at least partially protected, and is an interesting island.
White House Bay is quite well-protected and one can hitch a ride from there into town, if necessary. Just in dinghy
distance are 2 bars/restaurants but apart from that there isn't much there (oh, but there is excellent free WiFi
despite there being nothing ashore).
Here in the BVI
the swells are over 3m but at 13 seconds period they don't impact sailing, just anchoring
. Even in the well-protected North Sound I can feel the swell and am waiting for it to diminish before heading to other ports
Have fun and good sailing!
p.s. If you do head
to Saba it would be great if you could post your experiences here.
