It’s Trip Review Tuesday again! We’re pleased to share some highlights from the Grealish crew’s sailing vacation in the Caribbean.
sailing vacation in the Caribbean
Marty Grealish and his two brothers, Joe and Steve had been conversed with their wives, Linda, Kathy and Teri for a long while about the possibility of taking a sailing vacation as a family. This year, they decided it was finally time to take the plunge. Marty is very familiar with St. Thomas, as he worked there for a few years as a charter captain and scuba instructor. He was excited to share his experience with his family on an unforgettable vacation.
The Grealish crew began their island getaway with a trip to Willy T’s… we applaud them on their excellent choice! Over the next few days, they enjoyed turtles, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, rum and cokes and incredible sunsets. Their stop in Cane Garden Bay offered excellent fishing and later the discovery of a bar that was showing a California basketball game for a taste of home in the islands.
Joe and Kathy had to head back to the states, but the rest of the crew continued on to Foxy’s the next night and were soon dreaming of the St. John Power Swim. Steve swam 1/2 mile, while both Linda and Marty swam 2 miles. The ‘Friends of St. John’ put the swim on for a couple hundred swimmers to enjoy a low key, lots-of-fun atmosphere.
The trip ended far too soon, as Marty writes, “Leinster Bay on St. John is a couple of easy miles up the north side of St. John and was great place to reflect on the trip and contemplate sailing the boat to South America, claiming we were lost. It’s a beautiful anchorage with a historic sugar mill and hiking trail shore side. The last day is the worst of course. Although it was a clear beautiful morning, we were heading back to Road Town.”
He ended his review saying, “We ended up getting the boat nine days for the price of seven which was worth its weight in gold. Those extra days made all the difference… I guess all that’s left to do now is plan for the next trip!”
