The swell was up the first two days so we had to rearrange our schedule a bit, but it was not an issue, we got everywhere so quickly. I think the highlight sailing was the reach from Leverick to Jost Van Dyke - great wind and big, long, rolling swells - much different type of sea than we get on the Great Lakes (and much more comfortable). I can definitely see returning to this cruising ground in the future.
We're taking a 36i with Sunsail in a couple of weeks. Anything you'd recommend bringing that you didn't, or leaving behind if you brought it? This will be our first charter in the BVI's so any advice is welcomed.

Thanks
