Re: BVI Sail Destination Times?
.....Note that due to the waves usually found in the BVI going striaght downwind won't work very well unless you have a pole for the genoa/jib and I've yet to see a charter boat with one, so going downwind might end up giving your slowest average speeds......
Totally agree with Z. Unless you are crossing essentially north-south inside Sir Francis Drake, you are going to be tacking or jibing. But its a sailing vacation! Go with it and enjoy. If one gets tired of it, fire up the iron genny and go enjoy a beer. You'll find most do at some point. We tacked half way up the passage to Gorda and motor sailed the rest. It's all good. Sail when you want, don't when you don't.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
