Passage to St. Vincent

Oct 20, 2010


Location: St. Vincent
Author: Nick
We set sail today for St. Vincent. An island Ocean Star has not seen for the past four years and a completely new destination for the entire crew. We raised sails at 9 am and sailed for almost six hours with no motor, something we have not done for almost a week now. The passage was smooth and the crew is working together quicker and more efficiently than ever. Sails went up and came down in record time, tacks happened with minimal hands on deck and on sails, we kept a steady heading the entire passage and launched a dingy in seas and retrieved it quicker than we anticipated. The one down side of our passage was we lost a race against a ferry named Gem Star. Other than the defeat in the race of the Stars we had a fast paced trip to a new location that we are all anxious to get acquainted with. Ocean Star crew member #12
