I tried to update yesterday but had transmission glitches. I think those who responded thought we had returned.
Actually we're about four hours out of Philipsburg St. Marten. Today's a little rocky (moderate seas) and windy (Force 8 Gale). Love it! It'll keep the breakfast crowd in the dining room to a minimum.
Keeping with the Explorer's tradition, we stopped thursday night around 10:30 EDT to assist a racing yacht that had lost its main mast and didn't have fuel to get to Bermuda (our first stop Friday). The captain could have made a lot of money on that one if he had so desired.
Any questions, I'll check back in this afternoon or tomorrow.
Hope everyone has a grand Monday and our prayers to all who are ill or are suffering travail of any sort.
Thanks for checking in. Glad to hear you are having a great time even if the seas are a little rough. Nice to hear that you (or the ship & crew) have been able to help those folks on the sail boat out.
