sailing us virgin islands
You''re probably chartering out of Compass Point area, so the first thing is probably stay east. No need to go into Charlotte Amalie harbor. Take a cab. Red Hook can keep you busy on any given night (wow, I almost feel jaded) with a half dozen bars. Cruz Bay is great, Beach Bar, Woody''s, etc. Sail around the west end of STJ and spend some time at Skinny Legs. Sail toward the east and do the beaches east of Caneel. Check out National Park Rules on moorings, anchoring, etc., because they''re in flux, and federal fines suck. Bring a passport and skate past Mary''s Point putting little Thatch to port and roll into West End Tortola and clear in at the customs dock, harbor left. Hang out at Soper''s Hole or go to Jost Van Dyke to the north or Cane Garden Bay out around the corner. Go back around West End and you''ve got another couple hundred places to hang out - Willie T, Roadtown, East End, Spanishtown and everything in between. Man, I''ve got to get out of this office and head east rather than go to the boatyard again this weekend. Oh yeah, wahoo tournament this Sunday.....
