Sailing downwind in 20ish knot winds the last few days! Double reefed and still flying as fast as the engineers designed the boat to go!
Chasing $500k catamarans is always fun in the wee Day Dream Believer!
According to Snowman the fun of that is over, we will have 20+ on the nose the next few days! 🙂
Plan is to hide out in little coves of St. John… not going too far
We sailed from Tortola to Nanny Cay… here we had a master plan… although the boat needed water it didn’t need fuel..
So Timbo Slooooowly added 5.1 gallons of fuel a click at a time on the pump as the girls sneaked into the resort to use unlimited hot water showers!
We needed TONS of water on board, all three tanks EMPTY… seems this crew goes through water a little more than the boys did… bonus is the boat smells MUCH BETTER! 🙂
This boat is soooo easy to handle… Im backing into docks in high winds just to show off… trust me, I had more than one occasion last year showing off with the opposite results!! ha!
Still finding pop tops all over the boat… mystery continues
Continuing sailing to West end, we provisioned the boat and checked out of the British Virgins…
Sails back up we headed to St. John and pulled into Maho bay for the night…
Girls wasted to time jumping in to snorkel for a few hours…
Found a interesting reef with many fish and turtles, pretty cool!
Next morning up the sails and over to Cruz Bay, St. John to Check into the US of A
We normally anchor off shore and dingy into this very small harbor….
Not this time.. we backed into the virgin island tourist dock and walked over to customs area…
Soon enough the sails are back up and we cruise over to St. Thomas, RedHook…
So… Great news, our niece Lindsay arrived last night… wind is crazy so we tucked into a secure dock…
Girlz enjoying cruising around town and using the hot unlimited water showers… geese everyone is so clean!
Everything on the boat is working awesome… fun times!
Have a Great Day!
Flight from Puerto Rico to BVI
