Timshel crossed the finish line in Rodney Bay St Lucia at the crack of dawn on Thursday morning 14 days 20 hrs 7 min 46 secs (by my watch anyway). As promised someone from World Cruising Club was there on the pontoon to meet us and help us tie up and the guy from St Lucia tourist board was there with rum punch and basket of fruit despite the early hour. And we did drink the rum as it gradually sunk in that we really had arrived.

All done under sail, we did not use any diesel for the passage. Unfortunately the generator broke the first day, luckily the wind generator and the towed generator together gave us enough battery charging so we didn’t have to start the engine at all. We did turn off anything nonessential – the echosounder, the chart plotter and mainly used the wind vane steering. We did run the fridge, the VHF, the AIS, wind instruments and log, lights as appropriate but most of the power went on the SSB radio with 2 daily schedules and getting emails and grib files. It was a pretty easy passage with good winds from the expected direction (ie behind us) only a few calms and squalls to contend with so we made good time. I guess that’s why they call it the milk run. We were very excited to be here but didn’t really feel we’d done enough to cross an ocean. Just now enjoying St Lucia and getting the boat ready for guests (my sister and family).
