This was our first long passage (900 miles) with just the two of us for crew. We had a little of everything with winds on our departure, no wind and motoring for about a day, and then a boisterous beam reach once we reached the trades. Our autopilot fell apart early one morning, but we put it back together and carried on. We double reefed the main and flew our staysail to slow down New Morning for the last day and ensure we’d arrive in daylight. The passage took five days for an average of 180 miles / day. We cleared customs in late morning and were in the bar at Saba Rock by sunset!
