One Day, One Country, 25 miles

08 January 2019 | Virgin Gorda, BVI
George Stonecliffe
Leaving St. John's, USVI, we were positioning ourselves to cross the Anegada Strait which has a reputation for being rough seas and winds. The weather forecast was to be moderate winds and light seas tonight. So we are anchored at Virgin Gorda, the northeast most point of the British Virgin Islands. We will leave at midnight for the 65 mile passage to Anguilla. Our plan is to continue on to Guadalupe which is further south along the Leeward Islands. There we plan on meeting our Portland friends, Craig and Barbara Johnston on sv Sequoia. Meanwhile we had a wonderful sail up the protected waters of the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the centerpiece of the BVI. It was 25 miles as the Brown Booby flies, but probably 40 with all the tacking! We were constantly reminded of our charter on the Pentimento from the Moorings in 1999. Sue's parents jointed Sue and me with son Ted, and daughter Jenna and her husband Steve Gorham. It was a celebration of Sue's mother's 80th birthday. And it was one of the first outings for us after having taken the battery of American Sailing Association classes, kicking off our love for sailing.
