From Dave in BVI

Sent from Dave Hildred in BVI on saturday 7 April….

Its a lovely sunny day in the BVI and the wind is blowing gently from the sotheast; just where the crew of Antiki need it ! As I write this they are some 50 miles due east of me in Tortola and heading on a course of 323 degrees. That’s great and they should, all being well, pass at least 35 to 40 miles to the east of Anegada ( the eastern most of the British Virgin Islands).

The forecast is good for more of the same today and tomorrow, but Monday the wind is predicted to go round more to the east and northeast for 36 hours so that will be less favouarble for a while. They should be well clear of our islands by then though and have some sea room, so shouldn’t be in any danger. They may decide to deploy the sea anchor of course rather than loose the hard won distance they have gained.

I always liken sea room to money in the bank, its all in reserve and needs to be spent carefully !

The rafts speed appears good and their track unwavering so that would indicate they have a good handle on control of Antiki already. Good work guys. I hope you continue to thrive.

I tried to borrow a plane today to go out and visit, but as it’s Easter all the pilots I know are busy on charter flights. A real shame as it would have been fun to fly out and get an overhead view of Anthony’s thinning thatch…being short (-ish!) and he tall I never did get that perspective!
