Hurricane Dean - D+2 St. Martin SXM St. Maarten

Happy to say that the swell has diminished somewhat. We both slept well last night but being tired from not sleeping much the night before might have played a small part :)

This morning, Sunday Aug.19,2007, the bridge on the Dutch side of St. Maarten opened for the first time since Thursday afternoon at 5:30pm.

Fourteen boats left the lagoon with the 9:30am bridge... Three or four small island cargo ships, a megayacht, a couple of catamarans, dive liveaboard cattle boat, ...

And eight boats left with the 11:30am bridge. Among the group were a couple of tugs, and a few daysailers, such as Golden Eagle and Random Wind.

It is a beautiful day here.

All the best!
