Time for a Rest!

Enjoying a tropical martini in the BVI's!

Then it was back to Colorado and guess what?  SNOW!!!

Our sailing friends on Cattales.  The Pain Killer drinks at the Soggy Dollar Bar were awesome, arrrrr!

We had to decompress here after working on Aspen in the boat yard!

 Ah yes, more cocktails onboard Aspen in the BVI's

Getting ready to haul Aspen out and secure her on land

Aspen getting a well deserved rest!

S/Y Aspen – June 5, 2014 – Log #122
Aspen Position: 18 degrees 29’ N  064 degrees 21’ W
Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

It has been a long sailing season for Aspen and her crew!

This season we started in Marmaris, Turkey and sailed across the entire Mediterranean, into the Atlantic Ocean and down to the Canary Islands where we joined the ARC fleet and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to the lovely Caribbean to close our track around the world.

Then it was Island Time again as we made our way slowly up the island chain to the British Virgin Islands where Aspen is getting a much needed rest, as are her crew!

We spent a lot of time on Virgin Gorda in the British Islands, one of or favorite places.  It was also fun to sail along with our friends on Cattales and enjoy the warm weather and their knowledge of the islands once again.

We spent many an evening in and around the boat yard with Cattales and toured Virgin Gorda in a rental jeep where we found some great places to eat (and drink of course).

So until later we wish Aspen a safe hurricane season and for her crew, a fun and enjoyable time in our home in Colorful Colorado!

Sail on, sail on Aspen...
