Green Shutters

08 February 2013 | USVI Saint Thomas Charlotte Amalie
We left this afternoon for Caneel Bay in St. John. The morning was spent taking the dinghy here, there and everywhere to fill our propane tank, attend an appointment with Customs to enroll in their supposedly easy automatic check-in system (I am quickly losing faith in all things "easy" or "automatic") and getting the boat ready for a sail. Within 15 minutes after raising the mainsail just outside of the anchorage, we remembered a teeny tiny detail which one would think we would never have forgotten in the first place. When sailing from St. John to St. Thomas with the kids, Ed discovered a rip in one of the mainsail's seams. Did we think to repair it that whole time we sat in Charlotte Amalie Harbour? No, like I said, we didn't even remember it needed tending to. We were distracted with company and then Ed didn't review his calendar before we left. Our plan was to meet friends in Culebra which is in the Spanish Virgins, leaving either tomorrow or the next day. Instead, we agreed to meet other friends, Ellen and Rob on s/v Miclo III in Caneel before heading over to Culebra. Now I'm not sure what we'll do with the weather window we have and the sail needing our attention. We'll sew it ourselves and hopefully it will hold in strong winds, but it requires a full day of sewing. I know I'm repeating myself here, but it's always something...
