We had a nice family reuinion afloat with Kurt's brother, nephew and the rest of the crew on their chartered 56 ft motor yacht. We hit many of the usual haunts here in the BVI but with it being early in the season many restaurants and bars were closed (opening next week).
Tropical storm Rafael now threatens the islands and we had to say an early goodbye with them being required by their charter company to go into a marina and us finding a safe anchorage.
We are anchored in Gorda Sound on Virgin Gorda (18d29.69'N, 64d21.66'W, 60 ft) and have secured for around 50 kn winds. The storm should reach us tonight with winds from the ENE going N then SSW as it passes tomorrow. Stay Tuned.
