Day’s Run – 28 March, 2016

PICTON CASTLE sailed off the dock at St. Martin this morning.

We hove-to just long enough to get the anchor on the rail and the skiff hoisted, and then set our course north towards Bermuda, sailing close to the easterly trade winds under bright blue skies.  We’re homeward bound now, just one more island call scheduled before Lunenburg and the end of this 6-month transatlantic voyage.
