In the summer of 2011 I was skipper on a sailing trip to the British Virgin Islands. Our flight left Calgary for Dallas/Fort Worth then on to San Juan, Puerto Rico with a final landing at Beef Island Airport in the BVIs. We sailed for 7 days and covered a great deal of the islands. The weather was great every day and being in the summer didn’t seem to make a difference in weather versus the winder. We were on the edge of the hurricane season so was watching the weather through a hurricane app on my iPhone. Nothing came even close.
We were sailing in a very new Sunsail Jeanneau 44 with 3 cabins for a crew of 5. We stayed on a mooring buoy ever night and didn’t go to shore with the boat until we returned it on the last day. We did a lot of snorkelling during the trip. The water was very clear and there was a lot of sea life to see.
Sailing in the summer had its advantages. There were no crowds. We could get a mooring buoy any time and get into all the restaurants without a line up.
