It’s been four months since our last post when we raced down to the British Virgin Islands from Portsmouth, Virginia – seems like just yesterday. Over the winter Spirit has been busy visiting just about every anchorage in the U. S. and British Virgin Islands with friends and a few charters. These sailing grounds are still our favorites – beautiful beaches, consistent trade winds, anchorages everywhere and wonderful snorkeling.
In April we’ll be participating in the 2017 BVI Oyster Regatta, a week of racing and socializing with fellow Oyster owners, then in May we plan to head west to the islands off the Eastern end of Puerto Rico – the Spanish Virgins. All this before once again Spirit heads north to make way for the Caribbean hurricane season. Our transit north to Newport will include a stop in Bermuda, which just happens to coincide with the America’s Cup races being held there – what a coincidence.
Below are a few recent photos of our beloved Virgin Islands – a reminder of why we keep going back.
