I had the wonderful opportunity to sail with friends on a 54-ft cruising ketch from Tortola BVI to the Turks and Caicos. It was a lovely sail on a fantastic yacht with an experienced crew, great conversation and good weather downwind, down current in the Caribbean. Enjoying wine with dinner and espressos before the 10PM to 2AM watch, life aboard doesn’t get much better than this. We reached with the spinnaker all day and sailed with genoa and staysail all night. Got to experience a few really great sunrises and sunsets, saw pods of dolphins dancing in the bow wake and was mesmerized by the phosphoresce in the water on a moonless night.
We made a stopover at Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos which was unbelievably beautiful. Other members of the crew said that the island reminded them of Bermuda in the best possible sense. The islands possess a vibrant economy, beautiful beaches, great restaurants and wonderful people; a perfect holiday destination.
