Re: St. Thomas - Road Town Ferry Service

Sounds like Fast Ferry is the way to go. I'm trying not to over think this since in the Islands, anything can change at a moments notice. Much like American Airlines who already has changed flight...

St. Thomas - Road Town Ferry Service

Instead of flying directly into Beef Island as on our previous trips down to the BVI, we'll be flying into St Thomas our next one, it's about half the cost, including ferry service!

Re: BVI: Alternative to Full Provisioning

If your local library has them, loan it out, don't buy since there will be one on your Sunsail boat.

North U Racing Trim Course, is it for non-racers?

I'm not a racer, yet, but I signed up for this seminar figuring to improve my upwind performance. I'm sure I'll get something out of it even though it's geared for racing. Any other non-racers out...
