Didn't get a chart photo covering St. Thomas and Vieques so just did a Google map - I was curious about the day's mileage anyways.
Jan. 21 journal entry: We started waking up well before our 7 am alarm clocks. Our plan had been to wake up at 7, pick up the anchor and be underway by 8, but we'd swung rather uncomfortably close to a neighboring boat, who was moored fore and aft and so not moving the same as the rest, so we went ahead and got underway closer to seven. There was enough breeze to sail, so we raised sails at 8:30 and cut the motor at 9:00. It's 9:35 now and we are sailing wing and wing towards Vieques, our next port of call. TQ's at the helm, Kat's having a photo session with Jenn for the Offshore Sailing School instructor page, Lenore's lying down for a bit down below, and Dave's admiring the scenery. 4kts. (I was of course writing in my journal, and then I had to go take a bunch of pictures, and then after a while I asked for a turn at the helm since sailing wing and wing is kind of fun).
We had another delicious dinner by Lenore back on the boat, and watched the most gorgeous sunset yet, with a lovely new moon with what we think was Jupiter - and the bay stayed all ours all night.
Photos from the day - pretty much just what I described, I did caption some but mostly I would just click on the first one and look in the slide-show view.
