We lucked into a mooring right in Gustavia, then learned a harsh lesson on cross winds when moored fore and aft when we tried to adjust our mooring lines. But apart from that, St. Barths was very nice. The restaurants are mostly overpriced, but the food is excellent. The beaches were great, the roads narrow and the people very pleasant. Sort of a little piece of the south of France, complete with mega yachts. When we tired of the "city", we moved around to Anse de Colombier and spent another week on a quiet mooring watching turtles.
