Peter Island with Peter

With the safe passing of T.S. Rafael to the east of us, Kurt's brother Peter and his crew on their chartered motor yacht were finally allowed to leave their charter base marina and with only one day left on their charter took a trip to Deadman Bay on Peter Island. After a morning spent aboard Interlude diagnosing some fresh water plumbing issues and replacing a pump head, we meet them there for lunch at Peter Island Resort's Deadman Bay beach bar. All seven of us all piled into their big RIB and braved a surf landing on the beach.

Although Peter Island Resort is the corporate getaway for Amway and is quite upscale in amenities, service (and price), they do welcome well behaved and dressed (at night) yachties.

We managed to extract ourselves from the bar and beach, said goodbye to our buddy boat and headed for Norman Island and the Willie T. With the wind now strong out of the SW, The Bight at Norman was a bit too rolly for us and we headed back to Soper's Hole on Tortola to prepare for our next passage.
