Ok, at the risk of rubbing it in, I have to report that St. Martin is quite lovely at the moment. Team J World just rolled into the St. Martin YC after spending a couple days over that the beautiful island of St. Barths. After a few days of soaking in the Caribbean, we are now ready to shift into racing mode and get ready for the start of the 2015 Heineken Cup tomorrow!
The trade-winds have been strutting their stuff for the past couple weeks down here, so wind will definitely not be lacking for the races that start tomorrow. We have a fun fleet of a dozen 50-footers that we’ll be lining up against, and the level of competition across the board is impressive. There are some of the most beautiful boats int he world convening on the island, and the eye-candy down here is pretty staggering.
