With our next BVI trip starting in less than a week I've started looking at weather forecasts. Too soon to really know for sure what the weather will bring, but looks like we'll be reefing a little at the start. Doesn't really matter much, really. Just happy to be fortunate enough to return to see the islands and some familiar faces. I am currently happy because my photobucket account still allows for photo sharing! If this stays true, I'll kick out some reports when we get back. I have been digging through old trip photos and picked a favorite to post, seasons come and seasons go, but memories...they last a lifetime! P.S. My hair is a little more grey these days!

Print that photo and take it to Sidney's. Back when I was running charters I would take photos of the family, it was the only photos they had. It was a small service to provide to a great family. I have some nice photos somewhere of Adena (sp?), the mother who was rarely seen, but always dressed for Sunday church even in the hot kitchen.

Glad your photobucket is still working without a fee. Not mine, unfortunately!

My account is not free, I chose their 1st level upgrade close to 2 years ago, perhaps that has a grace period?. However, I will not upgrade again with 800% fee increase.

We've been down for two weeks. Count on "variable" conditions. The weather forecasts for winds have been off, winds have been 5-10kts higher. We saw 20-25kts with gusts to 30 on the way back from Culebra to St. Thomas with 10-15kts forecast. The Sahara dust was thick the first couple of days, but has been gone for a week. We've had a couple of rain showers each night. Visibility in the water has been the usual great summer viz - clean and clear. The USVIs/SVIs have been uncrowded, but we saw a steady parade of boats headed east from Puerto Rico, then back west. We head to the BVIs today for a friend's memorial service on Jost Saturday.

Cheers, RickG


Land based on the Virgins 2/28/18-3/5/18, booked and hoping to Cat Fight 10/25-11/3. June?!

Thanks Rick. The wind forecasts have been fluctuating a bit, i'm getting in the habit of checking twice a day! My crew will get some practice at reefing mid week! We will have a generator so no nighttime hatch scrambling when the rains come. My wife doesn't like the a/c as much as I do, we'll have to find a happy medium!!

Thanks Matt! Have you planned a trip yet? Cheers!
