Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola
Sunday. Had a lunch time stop at Sandy Cay, another beautiful deserted island but going ashore in the dinghy was interesting because of the swell! The island, owned by the Rockerfeller Trust, is maintained as a tropical paradise. Crossed over to Cane Garden Bay, Tortola for our overnight anchorage.
Monday. Next day sailed round the north end of Tortola to Trellis Bay where we anchored just yards from the end of the airport runway. We had fun watching the private jets landing and guessing which would be our plane on Thursday.
Tuesday. Left for Road Town and had a bumpy sail round the NE side of the island. There were 2 cruise ships tied up at Road Town which we passed on our way to Village Cay Marina. In the pm we explored the town and helped the boys with the majority of the provisioning for the return voyage.
That evening we were invited onto Solferino , another Scottish yacht, for sundowners which was followed by an Italian Meal.
Wednesday. Moved around to Nanny Cay Marina, our last port of call. Since our arrival, we have enjoyed all the facilities which include a swimming pool, beach area, shops & restaurant. In the evening we enjoyed a final restaurant meal with the boys.
Thursday. Spent a pleasant morning by the pool and we are now waiting for the taxi for the airport. We will be very sad to leave Blue Tarn. The boys have looked after us very well and we've had a wonderful time. WE are happy to know that they will soon be home and I'm sure you will join us in wishing them Bon Voyage. M and M
