I’m looking for one or two people to share a bareboat charter in the BVI or any of the nearby areas in February or March. I’ve got the sailing experience, and have single-handed my own boats for years, but the charter companies require at least two people on a boat, so I’m out of luck unless I find a ‘partner’.
While sailing expertise would be nice, I really don’t need anyone with much sailing background; in fact, it would be a great way for a new sailor to gain experience.
• Charter length = a week or 10 days
• Boat = monohull only, probably 36-42 feet, depending on whether we need 2 or 3 cabins
• Charter company = TBD
(I’ve used Sunsail and others)
• Few restrictions = NO smoking; alcohol comes out after we moor or anchor
• Cost = I’d sign up as the captain. We’d split the charter fee. If 2 people join, we each pay one-third and work out how to share the other costs
That’s it! I’m totally open to suggestions. If anyone knows any nice people who might like to do this, let me know.
