The Last Beat
24 May 2007 | Virgin Gorda
So we're finally leaving the BVI. It was hard to say goodbye to all of the folks we've come to call friends here.
The wind blows from Saint Martin almost every day of the year. Rather than wait for an act of the almighty we decided to just motor fast on a day with little wind. We were going to leave today but lo and behold, Fred and Cindy on Kelp Fiction (former local dive instructors) have decided to retire and come with us! We couldn't be happier.
It was pretty clam today and tomorrow should be the same. I did finally go up the stick to untangle the kite that got up in the rigging somehow so we are truly all set. Hideko didn't want to winch me up so Fred offered to "jack me up the mast". I wasn't so sure I wanted to be "jacked up the mast" but it all worked out.
