Our tour of BVI”s continues with a visit to Jost Van Dyke. A tourist magnet full of Sunsail and Moorings charter boats.
We went for a swim at Maho Bay St.John. luckily these 3 pelicans were around to guard the tender
Last week we enjoyed a Cruising Association rendezvous, at Saba Rock and Hodges Creek, thanks to Christopher Lloyd the Honorary Representative for the CA in the BVI’s.
We then went to Norman Island for a day.
Now we have come to Nanny Cay marina for some repairs. This will be our home at the end of the month as the Atlantic Cup sets off from here on 5th May.
The forward heads outlet seacock was jammed shut and efforts to open it sheared off the handle. So it has to be replaced. We are taking the opportunity to to do all underwater work to the boat now, as she has to be lifted out to replace the seacock. This means we should be OK to stay afloat for the rest of the year.
The lift out is booked for 0700 tomorrow Tuesday. Then it will be hard work polishing up the Copper coat and cleaning the polishing the propeller. new anodes and oil in the saildrive. Hopefully if all goes well we will relaunch on Thursday.
In the meantime the lovely showers, fresh water pool, bars and restaurants should make our stay here bearable
Sint Maarten was not very attractive but shopping was duty free. We took the opportunity to buy a GoPro video camera. This is an early trial to see how it works on the web site.
