Chesapeake is here

December 5, 2016

It took us exactly 9 days to sail to Virgin Gorda with the Salty Dawg Rally.  It was a lumpy bumpy trip with a variety of wind conditions – plain motoring to motor sailing to 30 kt winds and 4 mt seas.  We made repairs, of course, and played musical chairs with too many charter boats vying for mooring balls.  Water was an enjoyable 90.7F and the climate was often higher.

Tomorrow we head over to St. John, US Virgin Island for a couple days, then down to St. Croix, then on to Dominica.  After that who knows.
