I am surprised nobody sailing this week has checked-in yet on Sea Shanty! I am a late-comer, so have just made hotel reservations for the nights of May 19,20, and 27 at Maria's By The Sea. Some other locations are already full.

Looks like I have a double room, so if anyone is still looking for lodging any of these nights, I could share (since we will be, once aboard!) and split costs. Also, taxi from EIS airport to Road Town is about $30, also suitable for sharing.

How about a pre-sail cold brew get-together on Fri and/or Sat? Pusser's is one possibility - know of any others? It has been years since I have been in Road Town - Out of Touch! Thanks!

Stayed there last May waiting on Vela. Left/forgot my cell phone in the room after I checked out. Called them from Vela that night and they had the phone. I picked it up the following week. Gave the cleaning lady a good tip. Good choice for a place to stay and within walking distance to the boat pickup. Good breakfast too. Sharky's has good Mexican food. If you want something beside Pusser's

Cane Garden Bay is my favorite location. There are a variety of places to stay from cheap to expensive and Quito is building a new one.

Hey Doug O,
I will be coming in on the afternoon of MAy 19 to orient myself to the island and would be glad to meet you for a brewski. I need to locate a rental car and think that DeeDee's offers the best Jinmey at 50/day.

I look forward to meeting you. I love to sail and it's been far too long even on a small sailboat so this is a bucket list for me. Been dreaming about it for probably 30+ years. Have you sailed on this ship before?

All the best,
Sooz (Snooze login)

Hi Snooz - Sorry for the late response, but for some reason Sea Shanty is not notifying when my message gets an answer - this HAS worked in the past. Yes, I arrive (EIS) Fri 5/19 on Delta 7322 from San Juan at 6:35pm, if all works OK. Then on to Maria's BTS. Yes, I have sailed IWJ four times, two aboard Sagitta, but out of St Maarten. If you want more direct contact with me, I am MOHoser@gmail.com. Hope to hear from you, and that we can connect pre-sail.
