To Soper's Hole, Tortola




We left Cane Garden Bay for Soper's Hole to restock a bit. Out of ice and figured we should top off the water. Soper's Hole includes a number of marinas. It's apparently the best place to go to weather a hurricane since it's tucked in from the open sea and surrounded by mountains.

The first mate took the helm and we did a broad tack that increased the distance, but allowed us to get some good speed. Lots of pretty severe heeling, which used to bother me, but no more. I'm now mostly convinced the boat won't tip over.

Soper's Hole is the first place we've been to that seems to cater to tourists. There were a few shops that sold "island wear" and touristy knick knacks. We also had lunch and the best conch fritters, so far.

Filling the water, sixty pounds of ice, disposal of trash came to $30, including tip.
