Oof, I hate these 5:30 departures from ABIA. In order to get to the airport 2 hours before my flight I had to leave Ripple @ 2:45am. Caught up with Eric in St. Thomas and had a wonderful stuffed lobster at the Green House and won $3 at the slot machines! Lori met us at the ferry landing and we took the 4:15 to Road Town.
We arrived at the Sunsail base at 6 and walked straight onto Ananda, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 479 (47′ monohull sailboat) that will be our home for the duration.
After putting our luggage away, we wandered over to the Rite Way to provision the boat. That took about 2 hours to shop and stow all the groceries securely.
Once the boat was shipshape we made our obligatory trip to Pussers for a painkiller. Sleep came early and deep!
