Re: Our first bareboat charter BVI 2014

My wife and I chaterred a 34 ft sloop from Conch this past February. It was our first time to the BVI's and first time charterring. I have my basic keelboating certification and have owned a 28 ft sloop for 3 years. We were a bit uncertain about our capabilities on a new boat in a new geographic area. that uncertaintly dissapated within about 5 minutes after leaving roadtown. We had a GREAT time and had no issues whatsoever. Infact, we found the sailing in the BVIs much easier than sailing on Lake Ontario. We did tend to use mooring balls as i felt more secure on them but did anchor a few times. It was a great vacation and my only regret is that we didn't book the boat for a longer period of time!

I am not really from Toronto
