 I know it's been a while since our last blog update, so here comes the latest news since we arrived in BVI on the 21st of October. The last leg of our journey from Panama was the Dominican republic to BVI, and it also turned out to be the hardest part. The wind was against us 25 knots the whole way, and it took longer than expected to get to BVI. When we finally arrived after 36 hors or so we anchored off Norman Island and spend the night there. The next morning we continued to Virgin Gorda. 
We spend the first two weeks in Yacht Harbour, the marina in Spanish Town. Dive BVI where I work has its headquarters there, and it is also the "capital" of Virgin Gorda. It soon turned out that the marina was very expensive, so we moved the boat up to Leverick Bay in the North Sound, where Dive BVI also have a dive shop. So now Windsong is sitting two slips from the dive boat, and I'm literally 5 steps from work. Very convenient, and it's also a very nice place here with pool, beach, restaurant and a very lively beach bar with live music every evening in the high season. We might need earplugs!
