Needed a change of venue so I decided to follow Team Sandpiper and Shiraz over to the BVI. It is usually very easy to travel to Jost Van Dyke from St John as it is a beam reach for 6 miles. Anything east can be difficult when the trades are blowing. We left late in the afternoon for Jost and had a marvelous sail right into the harbor by Foxys.
Next morning we cleared in with customs and the wind was blowing south at 10 kts. We shot out of there and had a great sail along the south side of Tortola all the way to Virgin Gorda. A rare occurence for sure.
I grabbed a mooring in front of the Baths and went for a swim to cool off while Shiraz checked out anchoring options at Spanish Wells, about a mile North. I motored North and anchored in 25 ft of deep sand.
