We had a great sail from St. Martin to Virgin Gorda. Since I did not enjoy the overnight sail, we changed our approach for the return trip. We got up at 4 AM and left Simpson Bay on the Dutch side in the dark. There was only a sliver of a moon this time. Since we had entered way points into the chart plotter the night before, we just had to follow the lines on the chart plotter to safely make our way out of the bay and toward the BVI. The sunrise was beautiful.

Seeing Virgin Gorda, BVI in the distance was also a welcome site as the day was very long! We entered Round Rock Passage just after 13 hours of sailing. Since we had to clear into Customs in Spanish Town, we headed north toward the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor.
