Provo to Great Inagua

Our last days in Provo went by quickly and when a weather window developed we quickly said our thank yous and pointed the Star westward. On our last evening in port we had the pleasure of dining with the 2Gringos. It was a fun night and the crew is still trying to duplicate Polly's mango salad! Please check out their blog at In the most recent edition of their blog they again devoted space to help bring awareness to what the Star of the Sea does. Thanks guys! We really appreciate the support!!
Bob Pratt at South Side Marina was a wonderful host as usual with his cruisers net in the morning and his great marina facility, thanks Bob! Can't forget Scooter and his gang over at Turtle Cove....... so many wonderful people in Provo. Well it was time to get underway and complete the second half of this mission so on the morning of the 28th we set sail for Great Inagua.
