One foot on the ground
SETTING THE COURSE
Early start. Excellent & cheap valet parking service (Help Me Park) at Gatwick. Thank you Avios for a great flight - at last asking 'Do you take AMEX?' at every counter for the last few years paid off. Miranda scared herself to death watching The Shallows - a film about sharks. I revised my Yachtmaster theory with special focus on anchors.
Cab to English Harbour (see below). Bought basic provisions - everything imported and 3x Waitrose prices. Great staff at Dream Yacht Charter. Boarded BAIRD. Welcome pack of a bottle of rum and 6 cans of coke. Technical briefing. WiFi and local phones connected.
All going well so far.
