Sailing the USVI’s
Day 1: After we land we grab a taxi amidst the chaos at the aiport and head to Compass Point Marina where Chris and Calla start organizing the boat and I head to the store for provisions ($750 later and we are set)! It is almost 1730 so we cast off the lines and motor around the corner to Secret Harbor beach for the evening and enjoy our first dinner on the boat. After just a few prompts Calla used the facilities (AKA: astro turf pee pad) we bought her on the back of the boat. The next morning we are up bright and early excited to start our day.
Day 2: The winds are howling (30 knots) as we head to Water Island and Honeymoon beach. It was a spirited sail as Chris would say as we had 10-12 foot waves and we were beating into the wind for the entire 1-1.5 hours to St. Thomas. Once we arrived we found a crowded anchorage with live music playing. We headed into shore for some playtime on the beach with Calla and shared a pain killer and a bushwacker drink (very boozy) before heading back to the boat for dinner.
