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.

That's a great shot of Sidney. The family would love to have it, I am sure! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

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


St. John based 10/25-11/3.

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!
