1 hour ago Cane Garden Bay SeaSweep - 27 May [by sdgore]
For any of you out sailing this weekend (May 27 Sunday) and wanting to help with recovery, divers from ARK are doing a "SeaSweep" to clean up the mess on the seafloor that Irma made. We need boats in the mooring field willing to take on trash onto the transom - we will pick it up during the day. Or feel free to just hang out on the beach then help divers when they are dragging up debris. You can see the flyer on our FB page - (Association of Reef Keepers - ARK). Many thanks!

3 hours ago Provisioning on Bequai vs St. Vincent? [by UncleLuff]
Hi All; Looks like we are leaning on the 10 day two way charter from Grenada where we will be beating up or motor sailing to St. Vincent where we will be picking up our better halves.
There will be 4 couples and the 4 gents will be sailing the leg up to St Vincent which allows us to provision beforehand, learn boat operations and handling and experience some challenging sailing, all in order to instill a high level of confidence in our better halves on our sailing abilities when we pick them up and not subject them to two days of potentially beating up wind! Ideally we would be able to sail from Union to St Vincent (Blue lagoon Marina) pick them up and then sail down to Bequai. If we don’t need to provision is St. Vincent this will increase the odds of our being able to make it to Bequai in time (assuming a mid-afternoon pick up at Blue lagoon Marina).

I have heard that the provisioning on Bequai is just as good or even better than St. Vincent. Can anyone that has knowledge on the provisioning situation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines give some advice?
Thanks!


thanks

5 hours ago Anyone have one of Sharon's phones? [by Carol_Hill]
Anyone have one of Sharon's phones that you have used since the hurricane? Elaine says that possibly ours won't work. If so, guess we need to make other arrangements..

I don't have the original book to it, but it's a Nokia and there are some numbers inside that say Model 105, Type RM308, if anyone has one like this.

7 hours ago Perch Lite [by JimDS]
Where is Perch Lite located? Is it on the site of the former Perch? If not, where is it in relation to where Pedro's used to be? Finally, do they rent out chairs and about how many? Thanks, in advance.

Yesterday at 07:22 PM Suggestions for the elderly [by TreetopFlyer]
My wife and I will be taking her parents to the BVI in late June. They are in their late 70's and mobile, but weak ankles and a marginal knee will keep them from bounding in and out of the boat and dinghy.

They'll be on the boat for 3 days out of our 10 day trip. We'll be on a Marine Max 443 PC out of Scrub Island.

Any suggestions on helping them in and out of the boat and dinghy?

Also looking for places to visit that might be a little more friendly to their needs. We'll be provisioned to have meals on the boat, so don't have to load and unload for every lunch and or dinner; but it would be nice to have at least 2 outings on land.

Thanks!
Tom
