Hey TTOL fam - here's a link to a recent trip report in the SVIs and USVI with lots of pictures. Short summary below as well.

- Great charter with Waypoints out of Frenchtown. Smooth experience and the Lagoon 46 was in great shape. Thanks again to Nancy, Jay, and team
- Didn't make it down to St. Croix as planned due to the disturbance that passed over. Went straight to Culebra and spent some extra time on St. John instead
- Fishing was so-so, think we were dragging sargassum a lot of the time. Did land a Cero Mackerel that was great eating. Not a single bite on the south drop, just the shelf areas.
- Rode out the disturbance at Flamenco Beach, have always wanted to anchor here. Had great protection from southerly winds and we left before the north swell picked up
- Live streamed the World Series on the projector, go 'Stros!
- Magens Bay was beautiful, didn't have any issues with loud music or jet skis
- I underestimated the St. John bays/beaches and Cruz Bay. We will be back again someday!
- Least favorite anchorage was Christmas Cove, crowded and not much to do there. Would pick a different last night anchorage next time.

St. John is an eye-opener if you're accustomed to the BVIs. The National Park makes it unique. It also minimized the opportunities to eat on shore. We like Christmas Cove as a lunch spot and snorkeling. Glad the weather worked out ok!

Cheers, RickG

Nice report Matt. Agree on Christmas Cove. We opted for Secret Harbor instead.
