Thanks for the great report! We generally get around the BVI by sailing, which we love, but your trip sounds like a helluva lot of fun too!

Dan cheers

There is usually a ball or two that turns over in the afternoon. Beware powercats when that happens. They will blow through the mooring fields at 12 knots to beat out that slow sailboat! Swimmers and kayaks had better move!

Yes, maybe this will result in much better containment of things like Noro, which is much more common, as of now, anyway.

Look for the Cupecoy Beach Bar sign between Blue Mall and Porto Cupecoy, of course across the road. You'll find Dany and he will let you know which beach has sand as there is a series of 4 beaches there. Seldom crowded, $5 to park there by the bar but you can park next to the half demolished Ocean Club for free and walk in. As to bathroom facilities I share this comment from another travel forum

"I like the bathroom situation at Cupecoy Beach Bar. My wife had to go to the bathroom so I asked Dany. He looked me up and down and said, "For you?!" and I said "My wife" and he pointed to an outhouse kind of thing. Later I had to go too so I went to him again and he pointed to the bushes. I walked in there and he followed me and said "Not on my garden!!" and we were both laughing. He pointed me to a different spot and said, "Okay, that's good". I came out of the shrubs still laughing and he was too."

Can you anchor by sids and comfortably come to shore?

That seems to have been a brilliant idea for them to bring in some additional pool, bar and dinner business.


Yes! Big plus for both sides I imagine. Really looking forward to starting and ending the trip at Scrub its kind of like adding a extra day to your sail trip! An added bonus, gets us out of the regular counter clockwise route!

kim and pat--thanks for your input on the situation. We thought about it many years ago. Never got far enough to be looking at property. Don't regret it at all.

That is better than the straight 650.00 for the American lounge yearly pass. I currently have the Citi Platinum card that I pay 90 for so I might cancel that one and do that for next year which would be cheaper in the long run.

My friend Davita's husband would get a bag of self leveling cement and pour it in their pothole. Then add water and voila! LOL

It depends on what airlines and passenger status with airline. You can sometimes get them at day of online check in for free. Have done it many times with no preferred status.

Thanks for sharing this, Carol. This is good news, but nonetheless people visiting St. Martin should still be aware that crime exists everywhere in the Caribbean and good common sense should always be a priority. I've always considered St. Martin safer than the Bahamas or Jamaica (places where your safety was only assured when on resort properties). It's important to not overreact the next time a crime is reported in the Daily Herald. When you stop and think about the thousands of tourists who visit St. Martin each year, in reality it is a very, very small percentage you are victimized by crime. When it does occur, it generates sensational journalism that serves a good purpose by reporting this, but also frightens many people and even paralyzes some.

Scuba Doo for the win! Nice pic. Not sure we're going to make it up there in March. Not sure how many days we'll have at launch so we may be sticking in the channel.

Enjoy!

Pretty sure the bakery is still there. They have a big sign up in Great Harbour pointing the way to their shop. We didn’t make it there but I saw people heading down the street toward it, and it looked open.

There is a fuel dock (was in October) in Great Harbour. It's on the pier on the west side of the harbour.

There was a meeting in Parliament regarding this issue yesterday. Hopefully this policy will be modified, as it is terrible. Daily Herald story

I think they are exactly the same. I know the 45 Beneteau was identical to the factory 3 cabin 45.

Warren460 re Cooper Is, we've only ever been on a ball there but each time have seen skippered boats come in and if there's no balls available they drop anchor closer to the beach on the right hand side as you look at it if you see what I mean, East of the resort beach; being local skippers I've taken it that it's permissible but bow to your better judgement if you say they're breaking the law.

Hi Krafty81

Nanny Cay does extend a discount to our inhouse charter guests, as well as frequent travellers, local travellers and a few others. The rooms have varying rates and it sounds like you had a deluxe room with two queen beds (new room) and the discount applied. The other person must have had a standard room with two double beds, but possibly got upgraded for one reason or another (possibly someone extended their stay and his original room was not available, or there could have been a maintenance issue or something).

I hope you enjoyed your stay and found the room comfortable.

Hope to see you next time.

I know this reply is too late to help for the 16th, but well-maintained balls (approximately 10) are available in Deep Bay. The balls are just off Oil Nut Bay Marina and one pays at the marina office.

What a nice idea, an no live animals that have to suffer, either. I wonder where it goes after St. Martin? Thanks for sharing this.
