We transited from St. Maarten to Saba with pleasant winds and seas a bit on the beam. Saba has no natural harbor. There are mooring balls in the traditional anchorage area so we tied up to one. The spider hunt team made contact with the local officials and have been off collecting.
The anchorage is very rolly. The island is very steep, sparsely populated, and very expensive. It is a cash culture, no one takes credit cards. Add to that the fact that there are only two cash machines on the island and that one is broken - well you get the point.
Famous for the shortest commercial runway in the world Saba also has a large SCUBA operation. But that is about it. Not a place I would be in a hurry to return to.
Fair winds and following seas.
