Good follows bad, of course!
After our night of rockin’ and rollin’ in Roadtown, things could only get better, right? They certainly did too. We had a fantastic sail up the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda. Perhaps there was some mystery current helping us along the way, I don’t know, but we were sailing at over 7 knots for a good portion of the trip, up wind! Over 7 knots up wind? That never happens!
After arriving in North Sound, as we were positioning to drop our anchor astern of our friends on Ainulindale, our buddy Shane surprised us again by motoring right up behind us. This is the second time that he has snuck up on us while we were anchoring (read about the first time here). Perhaps Ninja would be a better name for his boat than Guiding Light. Speaking of boat names, Shane just wrote a post on his blog about boat names. Check it out.
After getting everything on the boat squared away, Rebecca and I, Kirk and Donna, and Shane and his two guests (Katie and Juan) made our way to Leverick Bay Marina to check out the Michael Bean pirate show. This show is very popular and Shane had, unbeknownst to us, planned ahead by making reservations for all of us. Wasn’t that nice of him? We thought so. It was a lot of fun and we’re glad we could attend with our friends. We even ran into Seth and Jamie, formerly of Slapdash, at the show. Once again, they were hard at work so we only got to chat with them for a moment or two. Next time!
One other good thing about being anchored where we are is that there is reliable, free Wi-Fi. This allowed me to upload the following video of Rebecca on our windsurfer. It was filmed the other day in St. John using our GoPro HD Hero 2 camera. Note the board breaking once again at the end of the video!
