This was my first trip to the BVI's and I'll be back! BVIYC is a great operation and I'll charter again with them. Even though I hold a Master 50 ton Vessel Coast Guard Captains license, BVIYC requested a checkout as this was my first charter with them. No problem. They provided me with Captain 'Sam-I-am' for our first half day of sailing and maneuvering checkout. Capt. Sam was great! If you need a Capt. I highly recommend him. We checked out all systems and sails onboard Stella as she had only recently been delivered from France. Stella was a pleasure to sail. We rarely needed propulsion and used on 21 gals for the week, 5 gal the last morning making a headwind run back to port to check her in.... We made port in BVIYC's suggested itinerary almost every night and frankly every port was memorable. I'll be back to revisit ports and see new sights, or just to sail around. By the way, the snorkeling was great everywhere, we only SCUBA'd one day. Thank you Abbie, Anthony and the rest of the staff for operating such a professional organization.
