Have you made your decision yet? We will be in the area the first two weeks in December might try to hook up some where. Kind of cool the last couple we met two years ago will be chartering our boat the last two weeks in December and will be married in Cruz Bay. They promised Better than Popcorn will be in the background of the wedding pictures. :-))

We used Footloose the last 2 years in BVIs and had a blast. We went in July, so not very crowded. Even then, moorings sometimes took a while to get. Go for it.

I returned yesterday from 2 full weeks of cruising the BVI. I did a lot of sailing and not too much wandering around the islands and usually did 30-40 miles a day (those trips yo to Anegada eat up the miles, as do return runs down to Jost van Dyke). It was great weather and sailing and not too crowded yet; but I was disappointed in that the nicer harbors and protected anchorages had so many mooring balls strategically placed that there was no room left for me to anchor (my boat draws 2 meters so that limits options) and I had to face defeat and moor for $25 night. I can imagine that in high season those mooring balls fill up quickly and if the anchorage is full there usually isn't too much daylight left to sail or motor to a new one.
