I find myself once again thrown into a mad rush of dizzying proportions. I am now in the USA. In Miami. But tomorrow I won’t be. I will be in the Bahamas on Abacos Island. Confused yet? So am I.
Basically, Reliance Yacht Management (www.reliance-yachts.com) have been really great and have paid all my flights and a night at a hotel here in Miami, as part of my travel expenses to get to Abacos Island in the Bahamas to help out as crew on another yacht delivery, this time from the Bahamas back to the British Virgin Islands (BVIs). That’s right, I just came from the BVIs today.
But hey, I will get to see some great islands along the way, spend some more time with Steve and Ellie – the greatest delivery team in the world – and get some more sailing experience. This time on a mono hull.
I leave you with evidence of my protest at overpriced airport food at the US Virgin Islands airport; I forgot about the overpriced burgers and other food, and just got a big pot of mashed potato. This is smothered in free ketchup and sweet pickles. Not too bad at US$3.50.
