Re: sailing BVIs in February for a week

7 Days is a nice vacation, but not enough to see everything and should you try to see too many things crammed into that one trip then you won't be able to really enjoy those places you do see.

Quiet & Natural in the BVI during the season isn't quite as easy as it might seem, but still possible. How far and when you travel depends upon your inclinations (sailing vs. relaxing at anchor or on the beach) and the type of boat you have plus your willingness to turn on the iron genny.

The typical route, starting from Road Town or Hodge's Creek or Nanny Cay is to get a start sometime after noon and head to Norman Island and "The Bight". That is full of mooring balls and certainly on the beaten path. But there are other anchorages on and around Normal Island that you can use to stay out of the mainstream - but you won't be able to dinghy ashore or to the Willie T's from places such as Benures.

What sort of a boat will you have and do you prefer to travel (under sail or engine) vs. lounge?
