S/V Honey Ryder is in the BVI's

We are currently tied to a mooring ball at the Bitter End Yacht Club.  We arrived and tied up officially at 17:05 AST.  The customs office was already closed so we are restricted to our vessel this evening with our quarantine flag up.  We will check in tomorrow morning.  Details of our passage and pics coming soon.....first showers!!!  Thanks to everyone for following along.  Special thanks to our terrific crew member John Tygart.  He was awesome crew!!!  Also thanks to Pat and Joan Allen for holding our float plan and communicating info to our families.

  7. Glad you guys are there. We followed your progress and heard Sabrina a couple of times on the radio chat. Looks like you had some challenging conditions up at 31 and 30 N
    Can't wait to hear about it once you all have decompressed.
