Caribbean 1500 passage notes

I was crewing on Joy For All in the Caribbean 1500, and we had our best and fastest passage yet. I was expecting a rough Gulf Stream crossing after several days of north wind, but it turned out to be pretty benign. Of course we were one of the faster boats (a Farr 50) so we were out in front of the heavy wind. The boats in the back of the fleet saw 35 knots for several days. I wrote up an account of our passage and posted it on my blog: Shanti's blog | YachtPals.com. After cruising the BVI on my own boat (which is based there) I left the BVI a week ago and sailed nonstop (47 hours) to Dominica. Tomorrow I'm heading north to Guadeloupe then Antigua. I have a Spot tracker, and have been posting passage notes on Spot Adventure pages. It's really cool with photos keyed to when I took them, displayed on a google satellite image. Check it out!
