We had a great time sailing and cruising around Anguilla and St. Martin in February. It was a bit windy but the different shades of blue and turquoise water didn’t disappoint. Blue skies, warm water, sunshine and a nice breeze – perfect Caribbean conditions.
At this time of the year there are lots of huge and impressive yachts anchored in the Bays of Marigot and Simpson Bay.
We also enjoyed to watch the participants of the Caribbean 600 round the island – we were anchored around Anse Marcel and the small island of Tintamarre. We saw a lot of boats tacking upwind the North East of the island of St. Martin under full sail – so beautiful.
Beginning of March, we went to see the racing of the Heineken Regatta. Also an action packed day and even more exciting when we tried to pass the bridge with everyone else. Boats in all directions and everywhere, most in “regatta” mood to be first at the bridge passage…
Big thanks to Hendrik for sharing his pictures with us.
