St Martin to Antigua to St Martin in 6 days?


I'm wondering if anyone has any input on our cruise plan... Our goal is to spend A LOT more time sailing than on land checking out the islands. We're chartering from Moorings out of St. Martin. This trip is in late November.

Day one - quick jaunt to Tintamarre to make sure everything on the boat is working. Tintamarre to Gustavia; spend the night.

Day two - Gustavia to Charlestown, Nevis (though someone mentioned that Nevis is offlimits for Moorings???). If not to Nevis then to Basaterre, St. Kitts. spend the night.

Day three - long haul to Antigua. From Nevis it's 52 miles, from St. Kitts it's 62. spend the night.

Day four - wake up at the absolute crack of dawn, Antigua to Statia (St. Eustatious) - 77 miles.

Day five - Statia to SXM.

Day six - cruise around SXM (or make up if we've fallen behind).

Any thoughts?
