Repairs – weather – upgrades… all this and more will be effecting our plans for the next couple of weeks. Our intention is to return to the Moorings phase-out docks on Thursday morning and then depending on the extent of the work that needs to be completed, make our way to St. Maarten at the next available weather window. We have a good amount of equipment to pick up in St. Maarten, not the least of which is our new tender. In fact, we keep emailing Bas, our awesome contact at Budget Marine and adding to the list! Hand in hand with all that equipment will be some work that will have to be completed and our hope is that we can get it looked after relatively quickly. We still have plans to sail One Love to Grenada*, complete the majority of the refit there and then have it back to the USVI in time for the November crewed yacht boat show.
This show is apparently a very big deal for those in the industry. As we understand it, the various brokers attend the show to tour the available yachts and speak to the crews. In other words, the crews get to be “interviewed” over and over during the course of the 3-day show. Sound like fun? Sure, why not? 😉 We’ll also get a chance to meet a good number of the other crews working in the area and that should definitely be fun.
*When in Grenada we’ll be making a check on our beloved ZTC, and picking up the remainder of our personal belongings.
