Though it took eight long years Ship 529 finally returned to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) on August 7, 2007. Fourteen Ship members, six youth and eight adults, we were rewarded with ten beautiful days of sailing. Ship 529's youth boat, Toy Boat III, was Skippered by Lonny McClure with Christian Hill as First Mate. Ship 529's adult boat, Badger B, was Skippered by Nick Liddi III with Robert McClure as First Mate.

I had hoped to provide a map with links to our stops but time has run out and I have not found a map I like. I suggest using Wikipedia to locate the islands and Google Maps in hybrid or satellite mode to view an image of the places we visited. Hopefully the next trip, approximately 2012, I will have wireless Internet access for daily, live updates.
