Title: Safely in Tortola

POS 18:21.44N 64:34.77W
Hi All,
Well we had a great sail up from Isle de Saints to Tortola over the last two days. We arrived in the BVI Yacht charter company base this morning at about 10AM, I hitched a lift into the town centre on a neighbours RIB/Dinghy to clear in at customs. (What a palaver, and not cheap either. I hope we charge these BVI people the same when they sail into the UK) 
We washed the boat down, filled the tanks and then slipped our berth and headed straight out here to Great Harbour on Peter Island. We anchored close to the shore in 10mtrs of water and had a great swim. Amazing fish here. We will spend the night here, assuming the wind doesn't shift. And maybe tomorrow check out another anchorage on another island. Tomorrow night I have to pack the boat away as it's our last day here before we fly back to St Lucia on Wednesday.
Here are some pictures I just took

All the best
Paul & Crew
