Looks like the winds (and swells) are up for the next few days. Be safe everyone! Reef early and often.

Does anyone remember Tony Snell's song about the Christmas winds based on his version of "Two Lonely People". (stuck in North Sound and afraid to go out) <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> Wish I had the lyrics to some of his songs. They would make a great book.

Frisky. We head out on the 10th for two weeks. Looks like the swell is at 9 1/2 feet and 10 seconds.

Cheers, RickG

Hahaha! Yes I do!

But it was the Peter Island Yacht Club where they were marooned, Remember? At the end they hoist a large beach towel to get them back to Road Town 'before they lose their deposit'!

God, I miss Tony.

Ah yes, blowing like stink down here. A couple of cruise ships diverted to take shelter too. Watch yourselves out here and be safe.
