Location: Statia

During the 15 hours sailing in the night, there was a good wind. But we put only the mainsail up because we had the wind almost in our face, so it was easier and faster to use the engine. We divided the crew into two teams. One was on the deck from 8 pm to midnight, and 4 am to 8 am and the other from midnight to 4 am, and 8 am to the arrival. The first group saw some dolphins!! It was so AMAZING! They stayed near the boat for about maybe three minutes. The crossing was too long for us because many of us were seasick. But we had fun at the beginning of this splendid night with a big moon. At 11 am we arrived in Oranje Baai in Statia and went to visit Statia and walk around. We saw a donkey and a strange road sign. Then we had dinner in Statia with delicious burgers, before we all went quickly to sleep to wake up the next morning at 5 o’clock.
