Saint Martin and Sint Maarten

The small island of Saint Martin is divided between two countries. The northern half is an overseas collectivity of France called Saint Martin. The southern half, Sint Maarten, is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. There is no border control between the two sides, so you can freely cross from Dutch territory to French territory. 

Norman’s Cay

We left Highborne Cay on December 16th. During our two hour sail south, we hooked (and lost) two large wahoo. We anchored next to a plane wreck on the south side of Norman’s Cay, which was was formerly owned by Carlos Lehder of the Medellín drug cartel.

Great Harbor, Bahamas

After departing Bimini, we spent a week Great Harbor Cay. Great Harbor is located in the Berry Islands, a chain of over 100 sparsely populated islands. It was the kind of destination we’d been dreaming of since we moved aboard our boat.
