Foxtrot 1 Trip Update Day 9 – Shandy, Mate
Our destination for today – the Bitter End Yacht Club – is a world renowned resort and water sports center. All boats left Anegada Island bright and early this morning, sailing in brisk trade winds though turquoise seas back to Virgin Gorda. Sailing back from Anegada is a trip highlight: it’s a perfect point of sail, there is the chance of dolphin encounters, and Virgin Gorda seems to rise magically out of the ocean as we approach our destination. Sailing and adventure at the Bitter End Yacht Club ensued in the afternoon, with all crew participating in water sports, small boat sailing, hiking, eating at the pub, and shopping. The crew especially enjoyed the small boats: Elliot and Gareth sailed a Hobie Cat with great speed, while Nathan, Tommy and Lily sailed a small catamaran called a Wave, and Layton and Jess tried windsurfing. The evening was topped off by yummy chicken dinner and a dance party ashore.
