Title: Waiting for a mainsail

18:27.0N 64:43.4W
 
The plan was that the new mainsail I ordered in Grenada would be ready for us in Tortola when we got back from the UK on 28 May.  The sail didn’t actually ship from Grenada until 3 June and since then DHL have been dragging their feet claiming that it is held up in customs in the US.  So here we are, on 9th June, still waiting in the Virgin Islands. 
 
I guess there are worse places we could be stuck. When we realized it was going to be a while we left Tortola and sailed around the islands of Anegada and Jost van Dyke.  Anegada is one of the few places where you can eat lobster when there isn’t an R in the month and they have lobster’s to die for.  (Thank you Jane and Pete for letting the restaurant know we were special guests that should get the monster lobsters!)
