Sailing St. Martin ???

Hi,

Last year I went on my first 10 day bareboat sailing trip in the BVI with my husband and another couple. We had a wonderful trip and are now planning a trip to St. Martin next July. Last year we leased a 40''cat and this trip the captain is planning to lease a 44'' monohull with center cockpit. Truthfully I am very worried about being sea sick. I know the cat was much more stable than the monohull will be but I promised I would give it a try! Now for my questions.......
I understand St. Martin has much more winds and high seas.... Is the sailing going to be a major difference for me??
I loved having a mooring in the evening.....but it looks like anchoring is mostly what we will be doing next year.... Due to the winds will we be taking turns checking the anchor for 10 nights? :-(
What islands besides St. Martin are a must see?
We love to snorkel!! Any special places to snorkel?
Best resturants for sea food? (Lobster?)
Thanks for any and all info!!
Angie
