We had the privilege to travel to the BVI over Thanksgiving with eight friends from New York City. The moment we set foot on the boat we felt like we'd arrived in heaven! Groceries were delivered to the dock, all the beds were made, fresh towels in every hut. We were amazed that all the couples had their own bathroom with showers...Everything we needed was there. The holidays had officially started! For five days we sailed to many of the beautiful islands of the BVI. Waking up every morning in an amazing bay, diving into the ocean and not having to think about commutes in rainy traffic jams or the crowded subways of NYC was so nice! But the best thing about the trip was having the time to hang out with friends...to talk to each other, play games, read books, enjoy the sailing together and above all enjoy all the beautiful things in the BVI together. Highlights? There are many, but I'll try: all the early morning swims, the BBQ on board with perfect timing of the cook: getting the meat ready before the tropical rain splash! Trying to get to the Baths through the surf with flip flops and sunglasses AND a (waterproof?) camera bag... 'only' lost one pair of glasses and an occasional bikini top (last one was recovered!), having our private on board dress up party at the end of our last day that entertained all the other boats present who fortunately were enjoying a couple of crazy people at sunset, and so many other things...the snorkeling, the fellow sailors, the restaurants and bars along the route, everything was great. I could really recommend this trip to everybody who wants to have a great time with friends or family in the most beautiful place of the world.
