First of all I forgot to mention that getting third place at Foxy's Classic came with two prizes!
1=dinner for 2 at Molly Malone's in Redhook, and 2= $250.00 us. towards a haul out at Indipendant Boat Yard St Thomas.
So as I needed to paint the bottom of GL, as had no time in St Lucia, and wanted to say hello to everybody there, I took advantage of the prize and hauled out.
Started meeting people as soon as I arrived on Chris and Evelyne's dock on Tuesday. Then 2 days later hauled the boat.

Also met up with Grace and used the dinner for two prize.

On my Itinerary was a trip to Cruz Bay, so after launching and spending a couple more days on Chris's dock, having a proper repair to my jib, and also 2 awnings made, I sailed round to St John. Again met people I knew. After doing a lot of laundry and a bit of shopping, Grace mentioned she was going to Culebra, I volunteered to take her as another gentle introduction to cruising again.
We left Cruz Bay 21st to the Airport at St Thomas, after a nice easy sail anchored there. Sunday we sailed to Ensenarder Honda and anchored there around 3.30pm.
So after Celebrating a local custom 23 June, that everyone on the island takes part in, this at Midnight on Monday Night, which entailed jumping backwards into the sea 7 times. If completed all your sins for the past year are washed away.
We left on Tuesday morning and had a glorious days sail back to the airport.
