Default Where The Dollars Are Soggy: Day 5

Day 5: Sail to White Bay, Jost Van Dyke and Cane Garden Bay, Tortola

After a brief breakfast onboard our boats while docked at the Bitter End Yacht Club, we hit the water for a long four hour sail to Jost Van Dyke. Once arriving at White Bay on Jost Van Dyke, we picked up a mooring ball and quickly jumped in the crystal blue waters to cool down and do a little bit of snorkeling. We then boarded our inflatable boats for a quick ride onshore, where we were greeted by the entrance of the well-known Soggy Dollar Bar. Once our dollars dried off, we took a walk down White Bay, which is filled with beach bars, hammocks and beautiful white sandy beaches ‚?? a boater‚??s paradise!

A fun fact about White Bay - in the early 1990's, it was almost always deserted with the exception of a handful of residents, a few ‚??in the know‚?? bareboat sailors, and a small group of visitors from Tortola. However, since the road was built, making it possible for taxis to bring people directly to the beach, it has been "discovered."

After taking in the amazing scenery on Jost, we set sail to Cane Garden Bay where we met up with the rest of our flotilla group and moored for the night. This stunning bay gets its name from the sugar cane, which is still grown to make the island rum. A few of us went ashore for dinner and enjoyed an amazing lobster feast at Myett‚??s, followed by dancing and a live island band at nearby Quito‚??s Gazebo. We were lucky enough to arrive on Tuesday, a night when Quito, himself, plays solo on his acoustic guitar. It was such a unique experience to take advantage of both the local fresh seafood, accompanied by the local island music. It‚??s now off to bed, in preparation for Day 6!
