Waves and Wind

February 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

kytoptrn.jpgWell, we made it out of the boat yard and Natural Mystic is better than new and working like a champion. With her help we were able to anchor right on the inside of the wave at Cane Garden Bay and score some super fun overhead surf for two days. With uncrowded conditions and a pumping Atlantic swell the spot is a super fun place to surf, a volcanic cobblestone point break that washes into a perfect anchorage with two hundred yard long rides, super smackarippable, an inside rock ledge barrel section and friendly locals. The vibe in the Caribbean is definitely one of the best anywhere in the water.

Then after a stop back at Nanny Cay to refuel and restock the stores we powered up wind as fast as we could to Virgin Gorda. This was to extend our visas; as after taking my two hundred dollars to keep my boat in the country for over 30 days, the people at immigration at the west end of Tortola then informed me that the matter of our visas could only be dealt with at our port of entry, Virgin Gorda. And it was a miracle that at 4pm on a friday afternoon, in little Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda after visiting multiple government buildings and talking to multiple officials all with different answers as to why they can’t extend our visas, I got to the top boss, killed him with some kindness and he extended all our visas and Ty and Ben din’t even have to come in person which was a big exception to the rules, Thank You Very Much.

We then got out of Spainsh Harbor as fast as we could and headed for the North Sound and the Bitter End Yacht Club. We quickly made friends with the Locals and got in the water kiting the next day. Everyday its been 9m to 12m kites and today I’m sitting it out as I have the biggest rash I have ever had from my harness and it needs some time out of the water to heel. The Bitter End is unreal and everyone who sails or doesn’t should come here to experience the fun times, beautiful setting and the Caribbean Flavor.

I will try to write a little more in-depth later and publish some more photos and video, as we are borrowing this computer to write this and can’t get ours to hook up to the Internet up here so, keep posted and we will try to keep you posted. Cheers Kyber.

    Here is what you were missing at Hollister Ranch today. Water 51 degrees, sideshore wind 20 to 25 knots and rugged solid throwing waves, on a low tide that ripped a seem in my wet suit and froze me. Enjoy the Carribean warmness and no ice cream headaches. P.S. Cachuma is spilling and the coastal hills are emerald green from all our rain. Missing all of you, Charles
