So last Friday, we told you all how the new Willy T had returned to the British Virgin Islands. It was a pretty popular story, receiving more than 1,200 likes on our Facebook page, 134 shares and a slew of comments. Well a few hours after we posted the story, we learned that the Willy T was no longer welcomed at its original home in the Bight over at Norman Island. The Willy T was essentially homeless.
Well fast forward to yesterday. The BVI News reported that the Willy T has found a new home. Thank goodness! So that’s the good news. The bad news is that you will all have to travel a tiny bit further to reach it.
The Willy T is now set to anchor in Great Harbour on Peter Island. We estimate that it will take about 15 minutes more to reach the new Willy T’s location, so not that bad. This map shows you its previous and new location:
So as we mentioned, the Willy T will now be anchored off of Peter Island, the home to the swanky Peter Island Resort. Unfortunately the resort also sustained a good amount of damage and will not be reopening this year, according to its website. Fingers crossed that they reopen in 2019!
We’re still not certain when the Willy T will serve up its first drink, but you know we will let you all know as soon as we do. In the meantime, have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
