Also started a little romance 30 years ago on my first trip to the BVI. Met my future wife on a group sailing trip in 1990. Got invited to join a group sailing three 50' Moorings monos with 28 crew. Took her another six years to marry me!
Been trying to get down to celebrate the 30th since last spring. Hopefully will happen in January.
I should know that tree, but for the life of me I cannot remember.
I did not propose to my sweetie in the islands. However we were married in 1978, and 30 days after our wedding the USCG decided we needed a 2 year honeymoon in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Great place to start a lifetime of happiness.

Beerman, what are your dates. We're arriving St. Thomas on June 17 and picking up our charter out of Red Hook on the 21st for 12 days of sailing, probably mostly around St John. This will be the retirement (today is actually my last day) and 35th anniversary trip.
With St John on the brain I've been going through some old pics. I wasn't into photography back in the day, lucky some pics actually exist. This pic is at the Back Yard bar in Cruz Bay with bartender Doug Sica...he eventually opened Skinny Legs on the quiet side with Moe. I still have my 80's mustache!!! If you have any pics old or new please post! Cheers!
