One could call it a roll of the dice- choosing a week in September to go sailing in the Caribbean- but the weather gods certainly smiled upon us last week! Although we could have enjoyed more wind towards the end of the week, all in all ours was a wonderfully relaxing 8 nights/7 days in the BVIs. The almost empty anchorages (only 4 vessels in Anegada!) and quiet snorkeling spots provided just the peace and solitude we had hoped for, and the genuine smiles and attention received in the restaurants and shops that remained open more than made up for missing those spots that were closed for the season. What most definitely was NOT a gamble is the exceptional service and professional attention one will always receive from the people of BVI Yacht Charters. After getting the dates decided with my crew, the entire booking process from boat availability/selection to final payment was expertly handled by Abbie, Cassie and Khadine. Chris and his team on the dock were again most attentive, answering all of our questions re: Syros and Anthony's patience and expertise insured a smooth equipment week on the water. This combination, sailing the BVIs with the team of BVIYC, is a safe bet every time- we'll be back again in November!
