Sailing in the British Virgin Islands

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.
