Good by BVI!.....time to sail south and continue our Caribbean journey...
Time is flying so fast and 2 and a half monthes spend in British Virgin Islands are gone...Even though it was not enough. We enjoyed this sailing paradise so much that in some islands and bays if we could, we would spend minimum 2 weeks more.!..
But season of storms and hurricanes is already here and we do not feel prepared enough to spend it sailing here in the North ..Grain de Sable is a home for us and our cats- too important to put her on any risk.. Thats why we leave. To Bonaire and later CUracao. These islands are out of official hurricane belt where the possibilities of great storms are significaly smaller than in any norhern caribbean . Also these islands are dry, so for our Grain it will help a lot. After the last summer season spent in fresh water river in Suriname, lets say, this time we prefer to be in a drier place
( but thats doesnt mean we didnt enjoy Suriname- we loved it!)
This is also the reason why we are not sailing to Trinidad or Grenada, where most cruisers sail to hide from the hurricanes. They are very wet places as well..... And our Grain need to be hauled out and get dry..
We have 440 nm around to go , weather forecast looks good ( east , soutseast winds 10-20 kn)...adn if all Ok in 4 days we are in Bonaire. Enjoying another great island, beaituful waters, snorkeling and waiting for a visit of our friends-Mikel, Cristina and Amelie!
...It was a real pleasure to sail here in BVI,....and honestly, we feel quite sad leavig them,,,
But boats are made to sail, and we - to travel:)
So ..write you soon from BONAIRE!
