Arrived in a very crowded anchorage for a pleasant overnight stay at The Bight. Counted over 100 yachts and motorboats, mostly charter. We didn't go ashore but had a meal onboard and listened to the sounds of the steel band wafting over the anchorage from the Pirate's Bight Bar & Grill. Almost frightened to death when the Happy Hour canon was fired late afternoon from the restaurant - so we had a rum & coke ourselves for our own happy hour onboard!
Early to bed as we were having a masochistic day heading up to Virgin Gorda which for 365 days a year is likely to be against the wind!! Hopefully the sea and wind would go down overnight ready for an early departure.
Squally weather on the way back to Tortola from Jost Van Dyke
