For the last couple of weeks Paul and I have been enjoying the BVI and USVI.  We spent two weeks in St. John.  We did lots of snorkling, paddle boarding, and some hiking.  Mainly we have just been relaxing.  Now we are in Nanny Cay for one more day.  We having been cleaning, provisioning, and doing laundry.  Our friends Gordon & Kelly are coming in Christmas day and staying with us until New Years day.   More fun to come!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nanny Cay hosted the Movember Party.  The party is to raise money for mens prostate cancer.  So, men grow mustaches for the month of November and get judged at the party for the winner.  Since Paul won the Mr. Movember for Caribbean 1500, he was asked to be a judge and I was asked to walk the men to the judges.  The party theme was pirate & wenches, so we got our customs out and had a great time.

Since our crew has left, Paul went out racing on the Around Tortola Race.  They ended up winning the event.  Then, we were invited to our friend Brian's place for Thanksgiving.  He lives up on the hill over looking Cane Garden Bay.  There was a total 10 of us.  Paul helped Claudia make pie crust for the pumkin pie and he got to carve the turkey.  We all helped getting dinner together and had a wonderful evening! 

We ended up having a great trip down.  The first 5 days was alot of wind and seas, however after that we had light winds and calm waters for a few days.  The last 32 hours of our trip we had 20 knots of winds with gust to 25 knots and beam seas.  So, we finished off getting beat up again.  We had a wave come across the boat that ripped off one of our doard vents.  We had water come into the cabin as well.   But, we made into Nanny Cay around 3:00 pm November 12 with very little breakage.

We cleaned up at the award ceremony this year.  Paul won the mustache contest.  Moonshadow won the most beautiful boat and we won the spirit of the rally award.  It was a great evening.
