Sailing – Bareboat Sailing

Sailing in the British Virgin Islands is among the best in the world. You are always in sight of land, the charts are easy to read and there is no fog. BVI sailing can be challenging or gentle but most of all enjoyable. There are hundreds of unspoilt anchorages, deserted white sand beaches and places to stop and swim, snorkel or dive. In the British Virgin Islands there is no shortage of beach bars and restaurants to access from the water.

Fleets are continually being expanded, maintained and updated to ensure comfort and reliability, and most of all – satisfied guests.

Bavarias, Jeanneaus, Beneteaus and catamarans mainly make up the fleet from 31’ to 57’ sleeping from 4 to 10 guests. All yachts are equipped with VHF radio, GPS, dinghy with outboard, electric windlass, roller furling genoa, fridge, freezer, CD player, charts, gas barbecue, linens and towels and a host of other useful items. Air conditioning is also available on some yachts. Kayaks, windsurfers and snorkel gear are available to rent and provisioning can be pre-arranged. A cook can also be provided at additional charge.

Experience is essential if you want to skipper your own boat, but if you would like the exhilaration of sailing without the responsibility, a skipper can be provided for an additional charge.
