Back to the USVI

We started the day with a dinghy ride back into Gun Creek to check out of the BVI. It is quite amazing how the agents in the BVI really act as ambassadors of their country, genuinely enquiring of our stay and if we plan to return in such a pleasant manner.

The day unfolded with little wind, especially in the direction we were going, so it turned into a motor excursion from North Sound on Virgin Gorda all the way down to Cruz Bay on St. John. The trip however was sunny and uneventful and with the motor running we enjoyed the competency of the auto pilot at the helm holding a steady course across the north shore of Tortola.

Check-in formalities were completed with the US Customs & Border Patrol, which are also quite pleasant in Cruz Bay but with a slightly different tone and no informal chit-chat. We then reversed direction around the south shore of St. John and came to rest on a mooring ball in one of our favourite locations, Greater Lameshur Bay.

Sum total we covered 36 nautical miles.

The only picture all day was of a rain squall over Tortola
