BVI trip starting in a couple of weeks!

As I said before, we (4 couples) are bare-boating a 45' cat for 9 days in January. We are looking for additional suggestions for great anchorages, great food, nightlife, caution spots, etc. We have received several ideas, and as it gets closer to the trip, I am asking for any additional suggestions that we should see.

Anything current that we should know would be greatly appreciated as well!

We love to party, and we also enjoy basking in the sun at beautiful locales.

Great info....Can anyone give suggestions on fishing while we are there? We enjoy eating fresh caught fish, but understand that some may not be edible. Any suggestions would be great!!

Bob, It sounds like you've been here before. I can only add, in case of a northerly front, Virgin Gorda Yacht Club is a protected harbour and close to the Baths. The 'ville outside the gate rocks. Soper's Hole, on Tortola, is also well protected with some fine watering holes. Enjoy...

Bob, We are planning on arrival to The Bight on the 14th. Is it a good place to eat, or just a cool locale, or both? Thanks for the info!

Also, Dances, I'll check out the site. Thx!

Hey all,thanks for the info. Joe (great last name!!) We are coming in to St. Thomas and taking the ferry to Road Town. Chartering from BVI Charters on the Dodger II, a R&C Leopard 45. My planned route is countercockwise starting with Trellis Bay, then Leverick and so-on. Any recomendations or suggestions?

One of our club members has a site that may offer some help.

Hope it helps.

Hi Mike,
I live in St Thomas. Who are you chartering from and where are they located?

Good for you! You'll have a great time! Just pay a little attention occasionally so as not to get into trouble! I owned a boat down there for three years and loved it! Listen to your VHF forecasts every morning, note whether there will be any swells coming through and choose your anchorages accordingly. I was always on a monohull but if there's a BIG swell you want to be protected. Should plan on getting into your anchorages by 3:00 P.M. if you don't want to scramble for a mooring ball and makes for a good long cocktail hour. Most boats choose a counterclockwise circuit around Tortola, stopping where they choose for as long as they choose. Get yourself a cruising guide and you're ready to go!

You should have a great time. I chartered a 45' cat with 3 couples last year and we had a great time.
Lots of great places. The Willy T at Normans Cay is fun. We went for 10 days and stayed at a different spot every night.
