Jan 19, 2013 - Anegada to Marina Cay

Saturday, Jan 19 -- There were no rain showers to interrupt our sleep for a second night. After a leisurely oatmeal breakfast we paid $3.00 dollars to have Barry take away our bags of garbage. At 8:00 we were one of the first boats to leave Anegada, picking our way carefully through the shallow mooring field and into the channel exit marked with green (starboard) and red (port) buoys (the rule being red, right, returning from the sea). These were the same buoys we had negotiated in the opposite direction when entering the channel. The...

Jan 18, 2013 - Virgin Gorda to Anegada Island

Friday, Jan 18 -- The rain shower came early last night, before we were asleep, so I got a good solid 7 hours of sleep. Breakfast was quick, no cooking required. We were cleaned up and motoring out of Leverick Bay by 7:30. The sailing time to Anegada Island, about 15 miles north of Virgin Gorda, is only about two hours but the approach to the mooring field is tricky so the recommendation is to arrive early in the day when the light is best. We also wanted to leave ourselves enough time to snorkel along the reef to the north of the island....

Virgin Islands 2013

May 19, 2009 - st martin,

well the journey from Turks and Caicos is 598 Nautical miles which equates to about 2.5 days at sea travelling at an average speed of 10kts, the weather was moderate with seas of about 5-9ft but we were heading into it all the way. this time i was a little bit wiser about what i ate. you see last trip i basically barfed, felt better and then whent on to consume another meal. haha. then barfed then felt better and consumed another meal. there was logic behind this. the trip was to take 24 hours from the bahamas to Turks and Caicos and when...

Dec 9, 2008 - Safe Harbors

Lots of good places to drop anchor in the Caribbean. Clear water, yachts, ferries, people moving through, great seafood and the occasional rum shop. And history as well. Old forts remaining from the Danes, Swedes, English, French, and Dutch. Here are photos of a few of my favorites - If you'd like, check out the following web-cams. This one is on the harbor in Christiansted. It's located where I stayed. http://www.gotostcroix.com/live/harborcam.php Cruz Bay on St John has a lovely harbor. Check it out live at - ...

Mar 2, 2008 - Tortola,British Virgin Islands

After a week of being so sick with the flu that barely left bed, I felt much better and took off to Tortola, BVI through San Juan Peurto Rico where my bags decided to stay, along with my nyquil and all other medicines! Had a great week of shooting and enjoying the Yacht, and the people who worked this job. If every job were like this one, oh how wonderful it would be!

Bret's 2008 Travels

Jan 24, 2008 - Off to the Virgin Islands

012408 We got up early and Carl drove us across Florida to Miami where we flew to St. Thomas with Jane and Carl and other DC/Rehoboth friends, Steve and Dodee Black. One great custom (at least for the old rummy Greg) is that when we got off the plane and were walking out into the terminal, we were met with people who served us with free rum punches, just to welcome us to St. Thomas. Greg is now really liking this!! The punch was really good and rummy. We found out later from Eric (our catamaran captain) that rum is cheaper then coke in the...

Dec 7, 2007 - A Day Sail on White Squall II

A chat with Sandra in her office at the Mongoose Apartments (home of the best library on the island!) as to how we get to some of the snorkelling sites offshore came up with a day sail on the White Squall II as a good way to avoid the crowds! Sandra called them and checked if they could cope with a "one armed" visitor and they assured us they could, so off we went and had the most wonderful day. We arrived and met Captain Chris and his helper Kate, who is a qualified dive instructor and who was going to accompany anyone that wanted to go...
