6 hours ago Arrived at La Terasse [by the captain]
First sight upon landing was a huge 3 mast steel ....sailboat in Simpson. Seems some Russian magnate is in a contest with Abramovich for biggest....

Got to La Terasse and they are hard at work. Got to our room and a worker was literally painting the ceiling. La Terasse has all new furniture and curtains. Cabinets and appliances on 3rd floor are the same as 3 years ago.

At sonesta, it’s 8 pm and I see workers out on the balconies working this minute with worklights. Got to talking with Afonso owner at la Terasse and he’s saying Spadero and co. are looking to get rid of timeshares there. Interesting.


Just got back from Toppers which was good. The brisket was well cooked. Great coconut shrimp and owner seems nice. We shall see what’s Monday holds...

Any experience with Inter Caribbean airlines. Our flights in May just got messed up and now we can’t make our flight from SAN Juan to Beef Island. It was with Cape Air. Any other options to look at to and from SAN Juan.

Yesterday at 09:01 PM AMEX on Orient [by wct49]
Anyone know if Bikini or Kontiki take Amex or other cards. Plan on just parking it under an umbrella for a couple days and would like to use my Amex or Mastercard.
Thanks in advance.

Yesterday at 06:16 PM Post Irma Itinerary Suggestions [by MarkS]
Hi TTOL Family!

I have scheduled my first trip back post Irma for Saturday July 20th for a week out of Road Town (BVIYC). Prior to the storm my typical itinerary would be:

Saturday : Sleep Aboard
Sunday: Cooper (alternate Norman)
Monday: North Sound, VG (Saba or BEYC) [obviously needs to be changed]
Tuesday: Leverick (rent car for the Baths and Hog Heaven)
Wednesday: Anegada (Cow Wreck, Loblolly, Wonkey Dog)
Thursday: Jost (usually Great Harbor w Dinghy/taxi/walk to White Bay)
Friday: Back to base a day early and taxy to Cane Garden Bay
Return the boat

Given the post Irma changes, how would you suggest I ammend this plan? I'm concerned about ball availability / Anchor room with all the capacity in North Sound causing jams in other anchorages.


As always I thank you for the knowleghe in the fourm.

Yesterday at 05:23 PM Grand Case Beach Club [by badbenni]
Yesterday we went to see Grand Case Beach Club. The main section is open and and restaurant is open as well and the beach looks great. The building in the parking area and where they have the beach towels etc. is not done but work is being done to get it in shape. The people there think it may take another 6 months to get that section completed.
We were extremely pleased to see that they were quite busy and all seemed super.
St Martin is coming back to life in a big way.
