The day was started at 2:45am, when watch team two woke up and got ready to set sail for the long journey ahead. After they ate breakfast at around 5:30am they woke watch team one up and got ready to be relieved and go back to sleep for a while. With our first long passage going downwind and without using the engine, we were all very comfortable besides a few who felt a bit seasick. We were surfing down the waves and even hit 10.9 knots speed over ground! After hours of sailing, napping and eating, we finally arrived in St. Barths. When we arrived to the channel we were immediately surrounded by huge yachts and nice boats. We docked Squeaky B the Homie G and Kris skidaddled over to customs and immigrations to get our passports tatted up. When we finished and none of us got deported, he gave us a tour of Gustavia and what it has to offer. I found my way to the candy section of the luxurious grocery store (in comparison to every other island) and bought lots of Haribo and Carambar. We finished exploring all the Hermes and Louis Vouitton, dropped our goodies off at home then headed to the shore showers, possibly the best shower I’ve had in the 5 weeks I’ve been down here. After showers we came back to the boat for dinner cooked by Matt and Griff and finished the evening with sweets and many games of speed. So far St. Barths is fancy, and very, very expensive x10.
