Another Night at Marina Cay
25 March 2007 | Marina Cay
Seeing as how the entire crew had just flow in from Japan we decided to take a sailing day off. We were anchored in a good spot outside of the Marina Cay mooring field in about 35 feet of water.
We watched the charter boats come in and enjoyed the mooring antics. We also saw a Sunsail crewed charter come in and anchor on 2:1 scope in the middle of the mooring field. Pretty bold. I try to stay clear of the crewed charter boats from the big companies. They don't own these boats and will cut you off on the way to a good mooring, anchor right in front of and on top of you to get closer to the beach, among other rude and potentially hazardous shenanigans.
In the afternoon we rented a car and drove around Tortolla. It was a fun trip and we completely circumnavigated the island. The road down to Brewer's Bay was probably the steepest incline I have ever driven down. Gnarly. The view was great though. We hopped over to Cane Garden Bay and worked our way down to Sopers Hole then back up to Road Town and finally Trellis Bay.
We dinghied back to the big boat for another relaxing evening in the Marina Cay Anchorage.
