Our Final Cruise around the BVI
So the time has come.
After 5 enjoyable but busy years in the British Virgin Islands, we are heading for new cruising and chartering grounds.
Our final cruise around the BVI, saying farewell to a few more of our favourite places was with our son Simon, wife Miho and daughters, Aila (3) and Maaya, (6 months). Simon has been on board many times but this was the family’s first visit.
Favourite placed included in this trip were Monkey Point and White Bay, Guana Island; Valley Trunk Bay, The Baths, North Sound and Eustacia Sound, Virgin Gorda.
Final preparations this week for leaving the BVI, then looking for a favourable weather window for a run to the southern Bahamas. Our plan is to spend around three weeks working our way north through the Bahamas, then head for Fort Lauderdale, Florida for some retail therapy and re-supply. A few boat jobs to complete there, the major one being the installation of new fuel tanks, then we are off to Belize. Plan on being in Belize by early August to prepare for our Belize charter season starting November.
We will be adding a map to this blog along with tracks of our route for anyone to follow.
