Tortola

On the early morning of December 8th, 2011 we made our approach to Tortola and the BVI. I had the 2am to 6am morning watch at the helm and you could see the glow of the BVI while it was still night. It felt so good to be able to reach 18 degrees North and make it to the Caribbean.  As the sun came up we were rounding Beef Island. As soon as Ray awoke at 6am I took to my cabin to get a little shut eye before we would head ashore. Jp awoke and raised the yellow quarantine flag and moored the 42′ Cat. Ray gathered our passports and went in with the dingy to clear customs while the rest of us waited on the boat.  As we waited, I look around Road Harbour from the confines of our boat, I am completely ecstatic. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would have traveled almost 2000 nautical miles by sail alone.
