Finishing the Atlantic crossing in Montserrat

This morning the guests have disembarked and the Clipper crew is already busy preparing everything for the upcoming cruise. The time has gone quickly and that is also because we have sailed so fast. In twelve and a half days we have done the crossing, which is an average of 9.3 knots over a total distance of 2858 miles, from Gran Canaria to Montserrat. 


Montserrat...? We would go to St. Maarten...? But no, it is not a mistake in navigation. Because we already arrived the eighteenth, we went exploring some islands, which we do not visit so often. So we could spend another day in Montserrat and one in Nevis & St. Kitts. Both guests and crew have been discovering the islands, fun for guests and crew and useful for future cruises.
