Just as I would expect. Why some think it's misguided to expect to go there on vacation this winter is beyond me. They desperately need the business, the jobs and the money.ts. ......The best way you can help us, and the rest of the BVI, is to come and charter with us soon........
Politics very much depends on your POV. To an average northern European citizen, the NYT seems very conservative, economically reactionary. There Bernie Sanders is barely centrist and Hillary far right-wing.unless there is a public policy angle, to which they lean very left.
Man that sucks Tele - I'm sorry about your boat. She's beautiful...Unless Maria does more damage, CYOA expects to be running from December according to an email to their owners. They are currently assessing damage to the boats it seems manageable. Needless to say, with such limited bandwidth, they are not yet communicating much but they, like others, are doing their best to be ready to help the islands get back on their feet.
My boat did not escape unscathed - this is her off her stand next to Pizza Pi, whose extra weight obviously helped.....
Seems my computer won't upload properly but if you go to Pizza Pi Facebook page you can see what I am talking about
Adjuster has been trying to get down, gets cancelled, rebooked, cancelled again. His apartment is over in Compass.Adjusters were due in the islands at the weekend but have not heard anything - I imagine all hatches are being battened for the coming storm so probably not reasonable to expect to hear until Maria passes.
Friends in the islands are still reeling from Irma but doing an amazing job of pulling through as best I can tell. I cannot understand why people would be reluctant to go back the VI once the bases are operational and there are at least a few boats. They are going to need us there and I guarantee that many of the regular haunts will have jury rigged something - and we may not see so much space in anchorages again in our life times.
