We had a fantastic sail - woke up at 4am and arrived here in time to
find that the published time for customs closing at 4:30pm is wrong by
an hour. Well, we will form fill tomorrow and then explore The Baths and
have a hike over the other side of the island. We sailed right past
Necker Island - Branson's haunt as you all know. It is a wonderful
island. He paid £180,000 for it in the 80s. Nowadays you can hire the
island for £53,000 per week.
We're using the last gas bottle to cook pork chops - then we shall have
a very early night.
From what we have seen so far the BVI's look very good.
Did you know that the postage stamps here are in US Dollars but with our
dear Queen on them. It's a strange world.
On the fishing front it is the tale of the one that got away. It was
MASSIVE and snapped our hook clean off. Tantalising as we got it within
10m of the stern.
