I always take the number of berths with a grain of salt. Sleeping in the salon is not always a great idea.

The deck space on a cat is huge.

Tempest is correct about getting that any around the salon table. Another concern is being able to cook for that many people. The stoves can be small and the BBQ will likely have to be used in shifts.

Safety in the BVIs is not an issue. The sailing is some of the easiest in the world.

Enjoy and have a painkiller for me.
