BVI info

Help! My wife and I are newbies to bareboating. We're going to the BVIs in April and I was searching for info. I found a site that had a lot of good material, but I lost the address. I remember that he wrote about chartering in the BVIs regularly, his home area was Chesapeake, and he had links to clothing optional sailing sites.
Can anybody hook me up?

Here are a few other good ones:

http://www.bareboatsbvi.com/bareboats_bvi_legend.html
http://www.bvipirate.com/BVIPirate.html
http://members.dca.net/jerelull/BVI.html

I think the one you're looking for is the third one.

If you have any specific questions - ask. We've been there twice, chartering from Moorings (and hope to go again some day). But in general all you need to know is that sailing there is really easy (honest) and there isn't much to worry about. Just enjoy the weather, the wind and the water.

Sailing there is easy, I could not agree more. Great place for a first charter. Good Luck!

The best site for BVI charter and other info is traveltalk online.http://www.traveltalkonline.com/

You can even ask about specific charter boats and somebody'll have the answer.

Hey Rick - I assume you are in the Bahamas and have internet access this year. Where you be and how are you connecting to "the grid" ?

Hi Larry,

No I had to come home for a couple of weeks. I left the boat in Key Biscayne and I'll be back down at the end of the month and hopefully cross to the Bahamas soon after. I've been taking a laptop the last couple of years but just get a few emails off. There's wifi in a few places in the Exumas but the service is not the best so I just stick to a few emails.
