We have now made it to Jolly Harbour and the winds have finally decided to
have a rest - just as Tom's got himself a seat on a Swan Nautor for the
Jolly Harbour Valentine's Regatta. (Think he's required as ballast).
Anyway, they are out and about today and tomorrow, so much for a Valentine's
jobbie! Have caught up with Papaver, who are in the company of Brian on
Rhoda - a classic yacht, Brian decided to follow the ARC from Gran Canaria.
Both Brian and Graham are very handy to have around - Brian's a shipwright
and Graham an excellent mechanic, so they have been working hard around here
and will continue to do so! Jolly Harbour is much the same as it was last
year, though the Sports Bar is currently under renovation having been sold.
Guess they will be opening for Easter. Their pool is still there, however,
and the squash courts - though they are covered in dust at the moment.
We should be making our way to St Martin on Monday - probably stopping
overnight in Nevis as it's about 90 miles from here.
