10 Jan [Ep. 21] Final Days of FREEDOM – Pre-Lockdown SAILING from USVI to BVI
The world changes around us! The pandemic looms as we continue our around-the-world journey, sailing into the British Virgin Islands. Everything is normal until it isn’t.
After a chance encounter, we are invited to do some racing at St. Thomas Yacht Club (STYC). We hang out with our new friends there and tour the yacht club. It has some excellent sailing heritage, including producing many Americas Cup Sailors and Match Race champions. We have even raced against a few in the past.
After some fun, it was time to get back to boat work. We had a watermaker to rebuild. We fixed it up and even created a DIY how-to video in our tech talks section. We also check out the island of St. John (STJ) and do some snorkeling and freediving with turtles.
Then, it is on to BVI. We are sailing through paradise in bliss, but starting to become aware of the changes on the horizon.
