Well, we completed our BVI trip a couple of weeks ago......What a blast!! The eight of us went out for a week on a 45' cat, the Dodger II and it was tremendous. The British West Indies is wonderful. Great sunsets, very nice people and super conditions. (A little pricey at the restaurants - but we only ate off the boat 1 lunch and 2 dinners)
Everyday was warm (82-85degrees), the water crystal clear and the wind was 10 to 18 knots. I sailed into a different cove every night. We did the beach/bar thing, alot of snorkeling and a few dives. The boat was beautiful and FAST - I was flying the jib alone on one morning in 15 knots - clipping at a steady 7+ knots - WHAT A BLAST!
Thanks to everyone who provided info on the sites and places to see/eat/drink. My newby crew did a very good job and a great time was had by all. Can't wait to go to Australia/New Zealand in 2010!
Cya out there on the wind.
