St Croix Spinnaker Flying

We spent a lovely day anchored at Buck Island, to the northeast of St. Croix. Saw an awesome trimaran sail by that looked like a custom job of a Hobie 16 with a hull stuck in the middle.

On the way back we put up our huge pink spinnaker!

This sail is AWESOME. We were beam reaching in 7 knots of apparent wind, averaging 7 knots of boat speed!


Under the pink sail emerged a big schooner with black sails.

I pulled out the telephoto lens for this shot:

At anchor near Gallows Bay we saw her coming in from her sunset cruise.

The sunset was beautiful!

Another great day on Diadem.
