Just caught this nice U-Tube Video of Phillipsburg St Maarten for those of you who either have never been there or want to refresh fine memories. It features the beautiful Beach and Boardwalk as well as the Pasanggrahan and Holland House Hotels which are frequented by Jammers...

This photo was taken from the deck of Sagitta in St. Martin in December 2012, after we completed the delivery trip. In addition to the mega-yacht that followed us from Dominican Republic (far right) you can count five big cruise ships, including Oasis of the Seas. It was actually entertaining watching them all depart at sunset. Several had a bit of a horn battle going between them. It was neat seeing them all lit up. If you look closely, you may also see a crew member on the mega yacht securing the helicopter.

The second shot was taken earlier, from the dinghy heading from shore back to the ship. You can barely see Sagitta's three masts if you look to the left of the mega yacht.

Have visited there a few times and have the tshirt. Always thought that was the real Buffett place but I have heard of two other places to claim to have inspired cheeseburger in paradise.

Was good to meet up with you guys at Tortola Cay. Hope the rest of your sail was good.
