As usual, arrived the day before departure, provisioning at the nearby supermarket, getting everything into the coolers over night, and do as much pre-work as possible the day before in order to leave before noon the following day. The dedicated BVIYC staff made that possible and this is not to be taken for granted. Anyone who knows the charter business expects delays. But we were able to head out early and besides pro-active technicians, this can probably be attributed to the fact, that BVIYC's yachts are practically brand new. Even those who scratch on the 4-year maximum age, are serviced so well and presented so spotless and clean, that you feel like stepping on board at a boat show every time. It is incredible! Our boat was immaculate and sailed so well (just like most of the Fountaine Pajot range), feeling very light-weight and agile, making 50-60% of the windspeed at every angle (even 30 degrees!). All systems on board were 100% reliable and we had not a single worry the entire 10 days cruising. This time we went clock-wise around Tortola, which we highly recommend (seemed like we were going a bit against the grain, thus more empty anchorages and beaches), and we even went back to Jost Van Dyke at the end a second time just because how much we loved to sail the Lucia 40, doing the loop about 120% and back to Peter Island for the last night. Until the post-hurricane developments on the eastern side of North Sound / Virgin Gorda are completed (probably Q3/2020 and into 2021), just spend more time at other magnificent spots, like Guana Island (see photo) and Cooper Island (some of the best dining opportunities). Definitely get a boatyball.com account (especially for Cooper island)! Finally the mooring reservation service many sailors have been waiting for. All in all - if you want the newest, best performing yachts you can charter in the BVI - go with BVIYC!
