We are back in the British Virgin Islands again and currently underway from from the Bitter End heading to Nanny Cay for the BVI Spring regatta starting this weekend.
The delivery up from Antigua was one of the easiest I have had in a long time for which I was great full. Currently and recently the trade winds have been light so we basically just motored for 160 miles to get here. Chico and the other Ben on board did a great job getting the boat ready and got the boat up here with little to do at the end. Unfortunately still no fish so I might have to try some new lures on the way back.
Despite the lack of wind the long motor was the perfect shake down for the engine charging system which we had just done a big wiring clean up on and now seems to be purring like a kitten. Hopefully this is the last of the work to this system and we finally have an extremely reliable and robust system. Fingers crossed.
The rest of the race team arrive over the next couple of days and we should get a couple of days practice in before the main event starts. I have not done this regatta before but it sounds like it should be a lot of fun. Dorade has had a great run of results in recent events and hope to continue this next week, we will keep you posted through the web site and face book.
