What you have heard about are groups of small boats (including Catalina 22s) that sail together from Florida to the Bahamas, which is a passage that can be made by motoring and/or sailing for a long day. Sailing to the Virgin Islands involves a much longer and more difficult open water passage, and I've never heard of any groups of small boats sailing together to the Virgins. Someone on the trailersailor website organizes a Bahamas trip each year, but not a Virgins trip. The Bahamas trip is a good way to learn a little about basic navigation and to get some experience.
