We sailed into Rodney Bay Marina Saturday after a passage from Grenada. When we pulled into our assigned slip there was Zanshin sharing our finger pier. It has been fun catching up with Arnd. We had a Sunday lockdown, so we were both doing boat chores. It's always fun to see our TTOL friends. We are missing Cat Fight this year, but COVID protocols to sail back to the USVI are bit much. We'll be back in Coral Bay, St. John by Halloween.

Cheers, RickG

I know the bars in the resorts are able to serve past curfew. What about at the marina?
Were coming to St. Lucia november 11, Soufriere for a couple days then Rodney Bay till the 26th. Are you guys still going to be there then? Be great to get together for a beer or beach BBQ.


Drink all day at home, your friends worry about you; do it on vacation and they say "what a good time you're having". Save your friends needless worry, travel more!

As of a couple of days ago the restaurants can now server alcohol and the bars have been allowed to open up as well. But they have to close by 18:00 (curfew is 19:00 and one hour is allocated for the employees to get home). While the COVID-19 numbers are still high and vaccination rate is around 20%, they need the tourism industry so once the season begins in November the restrictions will likely be relaxed further. It seems that the government is still really worried about the potential superspreader events that the Saturday "Jump-Ups" might cause so the Saturday night and Sunday curfews will remain for a bit. The resorts have a huge political influence so can pretty much break any rules at will. They've been doing that since I've been here with daily tourist excursions from Rodney Bay while officially all such excursions are banned. I might still be here, and my boat will certainly be here smile

Fun visit. Always good to spend time with Arnd! We had a decent passage back to the USVIs. One squall gusting 45 tried to turn our solar array into a kite. All good.

Cheers, RickG
