Will Tommy Hilfiger Give Us Propane? (MJ Sailing – EP 64)

We continue to enjoy absolute paradise in St. Barth’s…except, we’ve run out of propane on the boat.

After a few more days of lounging in the anchorage of and on the sands of Shell Beach, we find that our propane has run out mid dinner prep! Not a big deal for that first night, but the next day we realize that almost everything on the island is shut down due to being a holiday weekend.

Finding one bakery that is open, we live off sandwiches for a few nights until we can hunt the streets in search for any place that can either fill our propane canisters or sell us butane bottles to run our grill.

Then a surprising thing happens….a mega yacht drops anchor just next to us, and it happens to be Tommy Hilfiger’s boat! Maybe he can lend us a little propane to get through the next few days?

Cheers from St. Barth’s!

Champagne Life on a Beer Budget (MJ Sailing – EP 63)

We’ve just made it from the Bahamas to St. Barth’s, and we’re ready to enjoy ourselves! We’ve been placed on an island with perfect beaches, perfect waters, and breathtaking views.

After stumbling around town our first morning, still suffering from sleep deprivation, we instantly fall in love with St. Barth’s and its main harbour of Gustavia. There are beaches full of shells, brilliant turquoise waters, and panoramic views from up on the hillsides.

Being such a popular harbour, we were pushed to the back where we ended up anchored on a bed of rocks, but luckily the forecast was for very light winds and we were not worried about dragging.

Cheers from St. Barth’s!

Sailing I-65 from Bahamas to St. Barth’s (MJ Sailing – EP 62)

We round out the second half of our trip, and complete our 977 miles from Eleuthera Bahamas to St. Barths.

Day 5 still brings somewhat unpleasant conditions, leaving both of us still not feeling our best, but starting to get over it a touch. While the waves continue to drench the cockpit, we continue to hunker out below deck.

Day 6 brings the sun and some calmer conditions, and we can start moving about the boat more and even get outside to enjoy the sun. Our hopes are temporarily brought up that we might make it into harbor the next night, but a quick check of our math shows us we still have two more nights at sea.

By day 7 the winds have shifted just off our nose, died down to under 10 knots, and force us to put on the engine. Matt explains why we’ve chosen to go to St. Barth’s over Sint Maarten, and even starts to clean himself up for the arrival.

Morning 8 puts us in sight of many beautiful Caribbean islands, and the entrance of Gustavia Harbor in St. Barths. Elements has finally entered her first port in the Caribbean. Toasting our passage with a bottle of champagne, we go over the boat’s performance on her first offshore passage with us.

Cheers from St. Barth’s!

NOT the THORNY PATH to the Caribbean (MJ Sailing – EP 61)

We leave Eluthera with only 950 miles separating us from St. Maarten. It’s Element’s first offshore passage since her refit, and ours since we returned to Florida 3 years ago to lay eyes on her for the first time.

We start the journey with a strong breeze and full winds in our sails, covering lots of miles as we leave the Bahamas in the rear view mirror. But a few hours out in standing waves, and we realized that neither of us quite have our sea legs back yet. And Georgie realizes she can’t go 5 seconds without being close enough to touch us.

But it feels good to be on our way, and we give Elements the chance to show us what she’s made of out on the open water.

Cheers from the Atlantic Ocean!

Having just transited the Devil’s Backbone on the north end of Eleuthera, we’re dropped off near beautiful Harbour Island. We seize the day with a stop at Man Island before continuing to our anchorage.

We spend the next day touring the ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS Dunmoretown, where all the rich people come to stay in Eleuthera. The marinas are full of mega yachts and the streets are full of colorful hotels, vistas, and restaurants. On the east side of the island is famous pink sand beach, due to crushed up coral. We find it to be the place to be on a Sunday afternoon, and chill there for a bit before a late lunch with the biggest conch sandwich I’ve ever seen!

We realize we have a weather window coming up in our favor to make the 950 jump from Eleuthera down to St. Martin, and get the boat in passage ready mode.

Cheers from the Bahamas!

Navigating The DEVIL’S BACKBONE Without a Pilot!!

Just north of Eleuthera is a treacherous channel known as the Devil’s Backbone…full of coral and shifting sand, making it a dangerous place to navigate.

This had been on my list of places I wanted to sail ever since reading about Bumfuzzle’s passage through in 2004. It is recommended you hire a pilot (at $100 each way) to help you get through if it is your first time, but we wanted to see if we could make it through on our own.

Since the Devil’s Backbone drops out at Harbour Island (a very elite spot of Eleuthera), there are plenty of mega yachts transiting this path each day. And since these mega yachts also transmit their position on AIS, we were able to mark a path on our chart plotter, mapping exactly where they had been so we could follow the same route.

Cheers from the Bahamas!

Arriving at Spanish Wells, we’re so excited to explore, but I (Jessica) need to make sure that whichever place we go to, I have sunglasses on to protect my eyes after I encounter a dilated pupil situation from my scopolamine patch.

While in Spanish Wells we do try to take a little time to do boat work, and Matt goes through the process on our plans for the windvane, and how he did go through to install it.

We also spend one of our afternoons walking through Spanish Wells, and then were (happily) forced down to Meeks Island during strong west winds, and gave us yet another spot of Spanish Wells to explore.

We’re Leaving For An Atlantic Crossing! – A Real Time Update & Review

Curious to WHERE we are at the moment in real time, and what our plans are for hurricane season? Let us fill you in!

Currently we have Elements of Life in Sint Maarten, and in the next few days we’ll be leaving for an Atlantic Ocean crossing, heading east. Our plan ever since we bought the boat (while sitting in the Azores in 2014) was to bring her back that direction, and then go north, eventually up to Norway. We won’t be able to make it that far this year, but we’re starting the process.

Leaving from Simpson Bay in Sint Maarten, we’ll travel approximately 2,400 nautical miles to the Azores, which we’ll explore until mid to late July, and then it will be time to head even further north. Our next stop will be Ireland where we’ll run out our 90 day visa there, and then jump over to the U.K., where Elements will sit for the winter until we can make our way to Norway next summer.

During the winter we plan to leave the boat for a few months and head to warmer weather. Where to exactly? We’re not sure. Maybe bum around a boat in the Caribbean, or hang out with my parents in Arizona.

You might be wondering….why are your videos so far behind? You’re publishing content from the Bahamas, yet you’re all the way down in St. Martin. Yes…the videos are about two months behind real time. Between having enough videos ready to upload during our ocean crossing, and taking time off due to a death in the family, I haven’t been able to keep the publishing schedule I wish I could have. But let’s catch you up on where we’ve been these past two months.

Leaving from Eleuthera in March, we took the route sometimes referred to as I-65, heading straight east and then dropping down into the Caribbean. After 950 miles and 8 days at sea, we made landfall in St. Barth’s. With beautiful beaches and wonderful French pastries, we could have spent months there, although running out of propane (and needing to get Georgie to the vet) sent us running to Sint Marrten for a few days.

As soon as all of our tasks were taken care of it was right back to St. Barth’s for their annual regatta (Les Voiles de St. Barth). We spent our days lounging at evenings going to the awards ceremonies and concerts, and even had a surprise show by Jimmy Buffet!

After the Voiles de St. Barth we made the trip to Antigua for their annual race week, the largest in the Caribbean. For the Round the Island Race, we jumped on a Pogo 12.50 through Ocean Racers. One day on that boat and I was left with burns and bruises, so it was nice to move to the Club Class on our friend’s Rival 38 (Jamel Lister of Lister Marine).

Leaving Antigua after an amazing three weeks, we had one more island in the Caribbean that we HAD to check off our list before preparing for our ocean crossing….Saba. A dormant volcano with villages built into the peaks. We even climbed to the top of Mt. Scenery…after having walked the road to get there from the harbour.

And now….we’re off! So stay tuned to our channel for full coverage on just a few of the tidbits we were able to share with you!!

Cheers from Sint Maarten!

OVERNIGHT From the Berrys to Eleuthera

Even though we found a PERFECT anchorage in the Bahamas, weather was telling us that it was time to move out.

** This channel is made possible by viewers like you. Please help us keep this channel creating great content by becoming a patron for as little as $1 an episode. Visit:

With NW winds turning more north and bringing uncomfortable swells into our anchorage, we were looking for an out as soon as possible. Plans had been to get to Eleuthera to settle in and do boat work, so when the first weather window came up…we took it!

The overall trip was going to be 80 miles, with 60 miles from harbour entrance to harbour entrance. Wanting to make a daylight approach to Eleuthera because of the many rocks and shoals, a nighttime passage was the best option for us.

Cheers from the Bahamas!
