Re: Our first bareboat charter BVI 2014
Seems you misread, I wrote that I have chartered with Horizon. First time this past winter. I did see the 54DS there, but chartered a Bavaria 36. If we get another couple next time, we'll definitely get the 54DS. Its nice to know it cold. However, its not equipped quite as well and things like the winches are smaller. Charters!
The real irony is the 54DS in the Horizon fleet spends winters in BVI and summers right here in Narragansett Bay. I see it around all summer.
I didn't misread. I just didn't read!!! I see the 54DS sitting there when I'm in Nanny Cay for the BVI Spring Regatta. It never seems to be out during that week which is high season, late March.
I did some regattas around here and St Martin on a 54DS. Decent sailing boat and super comfortable after the race!
If you come back and charter the 54DS, I can come help you out as skipper for a few days until you get the hang of it, or run out of beer, whichever happens last!!!!
