WARM WATER, HOT RACING AT THE BVI SPRING REGATTA, FOXY’S CAT FIGHT, ROUND TORTOLA RACE AND MORE… BVI Yacht Charter for Serious Sailors!
The British Virgin Islands attracts Sailors from all over the world. Few other places can boast relatively unspoiled scenery, pristine waters and year-round sunshine and warm weather, but what makes the BVI so special is the fact that we enjoy consistent ‘trade’ winds. The trades can be relied on to blow from the east-northeast during the winter and from the east-southeast during the summer and range from ten to twenty knots most of the year. In late December, twenty to thirty knot ‘Christmas winds’ often kick in giving more adventurous sailors a taste of more challenging conditions.
Yet another advantage of the BVI is that it is an archipelago of 50-60 islands. This allows beginners to become comfortable in the more sheltered and protected Sir Francis Drake Channel, with shorter distance sails, and can easily become more challenging, for the more advanced sailor if you chose to go further. What’s more with the huge choice of shore side activities and entertainment, there’s no need to leave your loved ones at home.
If you are keen to learn to sail, we can offer you an Professional Skipper for the duration of your trip. If you are committed, in just a week you can be certified for Basic Keelboat Sailing, Basic Coastal Cruising & Bareboat Chartering. It’s worth knowing there will be studying to do prior to your trip and a few short exams during your trip.
