Many congrats, sounds like you have an exciting adventure ahead!
Are both Beanies heading west?
Being nosy, what sort of boat will you be sailing on?

Re provisioning in St Maarten / Martin, here is a link to various supermarkets in Chris Doyle's on-line guide to St M : http://www.doyleguides.com/stmartinlinks.htm
Scroll down to 'provisioning'

We stocked up at one of these supermarkets (cant remember which one) 16 years ago, prior to heading north (rather than west) - we cycled there on folding push bikes, and then got a taxi to take us, bikes and provisions back to the Lagoon.

Make sure you stock up well on the ingredients for beer bread - those recipes posted on your other thread do look very tasty.

Thanks for tips, I'll stock up on bread ingredients and lots of cheese !

We're on a Fountain Pajot Levazzi 40 catamaran. So nice and comfy.

When I was there in 2001 there was a big supermarket on the road from Cole Bay to Marigot. It was easy to get there from the pontoon at Budget Marine and they provided a van to run you back foc. It closed down while I was there but it might be worth finding out if it has been re-opened by someone else as it was a very convenient way of doing a big shop.
