Sail to Virgin Gorda. Very lumpy and rolly, a slow
sail as we are very conservative with our sail choice at night with gusts. Took
down the genoa and motored to avoid a small commercial ship which refused to
give way. Lots of cruise ships passing with 1,000s of lights. It's like being
overtaken by a block of flats. Arrived having to look for a passage between
round rock (which isn't round) and Ginger Island (which isn't ginger - as far as
we could tell). With seven islands and more rock than we have seen, we safely
negotiated outr way into the Sir Francis Drake channel. A stunning place - you
can imagine our Elizabethan fleet here, hiding and waiting to rob Spanish
Here's one that didn't make it!
Although part of the British Virgin Islands,
Customs here is proving more difficult than Barbuda!
