Rick Moore Sailing to the BVI's


What do DOLPHINS, Sir Richard Branson, and the Eagles "Hotel Califonia" have in common..? Absolutely nothing, besides this video... but now you have to watch to find out! :)

This is our trip as we finally managed to escape the grips of St Maarten, SXM in the Caribbean. After having been there for over 6 months it was really starting to feel like "Hotel California"... where you can check in, but never check out! Lol

After resolving some major issues with the boat, we finally set sail for the British Virgin Islands ( BVI ) about 85 miles away.. set up for a great overnight sail and arrived the next day. Ran into Sir Richard Branson at the dock of Leverick Bay Resort upon arrival, and gave him a lift out to one of his catamarans racing out on North Sound, Virgin Gorda... filmed them racing back to Mosquito Island, then back onboard 'Sophisticated Lady' on route to Trellis Bay to pick up my lovely Regina arriving back from holiday with family in Switzerland!

This is a new style of update video we'll be posting more frequently this year, so be sure and let us know how you like it! :)
