The Passage Starts

At Crown Bay Marina Feul Dock....

The Brodrick’s joined us in St Thomas and after provisioning, we started the most epic journey to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.  We exited the Crown Bay with alacrity; straight into a massive washing machine.  First passage to Cullebra (Spanish Virgin Island) was unbelievably rough.  The prevailing South Easterly waves periodically intersected with residual Northerly waves, and if that occurred under our veritable keel, which it did with monotonous regularity, we were pitched around like an amusement park ride.  Except it wasn’t amusing.  And I have Cathy to back me up on this one.

Cullebra was Kewl!  Spent a couple of days there before heading over to Puerto Rico (Fajardo).  Here was stayed at a massive but friendly marine, Marina Puerto del Ray.  Fantastic, protected, nice.  Visited West Marine for the last few passage essentials, provisioned, and headed out en route for Provo non stop.
