My wife and I have sailed monohulls several time through BVI Charters before with one other couple. This time we chartered a larger boat and sailed with three other couples. None of them had sailed before. They all say that it was the best vacation they have ever experienced and definitely want to do it again. We have very calm winds the first few days and I was afraid that they would not get a good taste of sailing or "heeling". Then the wind came up nicely and they experienced what it was all about. We had great dinners aboard the boat as well as on sore at a couple of places. Can't wait to do it again.
