Today was the last full day aboard the boat for Rob and Nat; we started the day off with a short hop to the Indians where we snorkeled around the rocky pinnacle and saw numerous fish including a turtle, which I didn't quite catch with my camera. After the snorkeling we headed to Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda to clear out of the BVI and thence to the North Sound for a nice calm anchorage off Prickly Pear island and a big dinner before leaving the North Sound at 8pm and motor sailing to St. Martin. The seas were lumpy and the wind fickle, but it wasn't the worst passage I'd done and neither Rob nor Nat felt sick.
