There was no agenda planned for today, each participant could select a destination of their choosing. Malcolm had to return to Cane Garden Bay so we departed the North Sound and set sail for distant Tortola. The downwind run was comfortable and we made good time, arriving at Cane Garden Bay in time to have some lunch at Myett's on the beach. I had checked the weather to find that a north swell was setting in so I was in a hurry to leave this notoriously uncomfortable anchorage (in a north swell, otherwise it is a great place to be). I hopped across to Jost van Dyke and anchored at Diamond Cay. At happy hour I hopped across to the B-Line beach bar for a Presidente and had no luck tossing the bottle caps into a “Free Drink” jar but later on Ian van Tuyl and his crew joined me for a final drink. I had a steak thawing for dinner otherwise I would have joined them at Foxy's Taboo ashore.

B-Line Bar at Diamond Cay The B-Line Bar on little Jost van Dyke at Diamon Cay is reachable only by dinghy, meaning they cater to a very select clientele indeed.
