Wow, that's a tough combination on your wish list especially time limit

You are right about the Caribbean/BVI - right smack in the Hurricane season plus you will burn a day each way in travel...........and even if you miss a storm it rains buckets when squalls come thru......don't ask me how I know

A few things popped in my head but not perfect
1) Mexico - closer but weather at that time is also unpredictable
2) Belize - weather mixed & not a good 1st time charter place
3) LA / Catalina Island - open water sailing / long day
4) Chesapeake Bay - sailing conditions maybe mixed & not really for snorkeling
5) Florida - weather risk
6) Pacific Northwest - close but cooler

If there were no constraints, I would say Greece, Turkey or South Pacific

Any chance to reschedule to get more time & better odds ie; BVI (tortola) in late Nov or early Dec?
