We sailed to the US Virgin Islands on April 1 with Tenace. We anchored in Lindberg Bay and were surprised to see our friends on Broad Reaching and Goin’ South already anchored. We had a couple of days there to catch up on their news
And then on April 3rd we headed to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Sailing our boat to Jost van Dyke, anchoring in Great Harbour and having dinner at Foxy’s was number one on Richard’s “Bucket List”. He certainly looks happy having a beer with Douglas, our boat mascot. We wanted to be there for Friday and Saturday nights hoping to finally meet Foxy. Unfortunately, he was on vacation (celebrating his knighthood?) but there is always next year… We had a nice meal at Corsairs where Richard discovered a new drink, a “dark and stormy” (dark rum and ginger beer). On Saturday night with the crew from Lady M I and Tenance joined us for the infamous bar-be-que at Foxy’s .
We motored and sailed up to Virgin Gorda on April 5th and picked up a mooring ball at Saba Rock. We were greeted by a turtle as we enjoyed the beauty of the North Sound. We enjoyed a day here, doing some boat jobs and waiting for Tenace. We will buddy boat with them for the overnight sail to Sint Marteen.
