Steve, Shawn and I are having lunch at the Tin Can Bay Yacht Club. This is just off the public dock where Chandara was tied while Steve got his hand fixed. Nice place, reasonable prices.We took the dinghies up to the Tin Can Bay Marina. A nice facility but not very welcoming to transients. I will go back up to buy fuel but that is it.Stevie has gone back to the dirt world for a while.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
This is Jessica, one of the owners of the MaiKai Marina and Yacht Club. We arrived here from Raiatea this afternoon. Davyd and Michael will be leaving Reboot here.Fair wins and following seas 🙂
We at arrived at Christobol at about 10 PM last night. After sailing through the harbor entrance (awesome) we tried to find Shelter Bay Marina. After almost hitting a sunken wreck we decided to go to the small boat anchorage. It was in fact small but we were able to find a spot and drop in 26 feet. Morning and on to Shelter Bay. A very narrow entrance channel into a nice marina with boats from around the world. Today we rest,tomorrow we get organized for our canal transit. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
“Listen to the sound of the rain falling on my window.” It is about 4 AM Atlantic time as I write this. We were awakened by the sound of rainfall. We are sitting on a mooring ball about 300 yards from the resort and about 100 feet from the seaplane dock. I am so used to standing watch that I am wide awake. After a couple of attempts I decided to write this blog entry. The Bitter End Yacht Club is a complete resort. That means they want to completely empty your wallet before you leave. Mooring? You pay. Showers? You pay. Exchange oxygen for carbon monoxide? You pay. The store has the smallest possible sizes of products at the highest possible cost. Beer is $7. Since Forrest races Lasers we thought it would be fun to rent a couple and have an impromptu race (I expected to lose!) At $60 per hour per boat its not going to happen. The last time I was here was in the 2002 – 2003 year range. I came with a wife and had a job. It was a bit different. Forrest has been running “Tinder.” on his p
We left Jost van Dyme for Nanny Cay Marina on Tortola. We had a peasant motor sail Forrest drove Reboot into the slip for the first time. He did a very good job. We had thanksgiving dinner at the Marina. This morning we departed for Virgin Gorda. We arrived midday in time to watch the RC44 match race. Big fast sailboats! We headed in to the Bitter End Yacht Club home of $8 boxes of 10 garbage bags and $7 beer. We were not impressed. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 .
