Charter in BVI

Hi - My mom and I started sailing four years ago. We would like to sail in the BVI April 2001 but can''t find anyone to sail with us. We don''t feel confident enough to go it alone, so we were looking for a charter with captain or maybe sailing with a group who has experience in the BVI. All of the companies I have talked to have boats for 6 - 8 people, not just two (without the cost being really high.) Suggestions please!

Thanks!

Charter in BVI

I am available cheap or free(when things are slow) in St. Thomas with a USCG license and know the BVI really well.
With no compensation to say this it is my understanding that FAN FARE charters on St. Thomas at (340) 715-1326 has the cheapest boats in your size description.

Heading down to Tortola to cruise with Footloose in March 2001. I''ll let you know how we fared weatherwise, etc. Moorings is suposed to be top-notch but pricy. Footloose is branch of Moorings using their older but refurbished boats and priced accordingly. Air conditioning? That''s what the trade winds and swimming in the ocean are for!

Also, there''s not much opportunity to plug into shore power to run A/C. It cools off enough at night, with a breeze, for comfortable sleep and if not, the little fans help. See our trip report at http://home.att.net/~lorendi/bvi.htm. We just got back and we''re ready to go again!

Here''s a long shot. Anyone interested in a Moorings charter next week in Tortola? Moorings 463 (check their website) 12/27/00 to 01/03/01. We have a medical emergency and cannot go. Moorings will transfer the charter (we would conference call them, with you, to confirm all this). We are willing to take a financial hit to some extent, so you can get this at a discount. You would need to get to Tortola and back. Please email.

We are on our way down Sunday 12/31 for a week. We were hoping to just pick up a boat for a few days for my daughter and I out of Tortola. I couldn''t take it off your hands for a week but maybe a few days. Email back if this is possible with Moorings.

I am heading to St Vincent end of April to bareboat with friends. Anything I should know good/bad about SunSail? Also, any comments on St Vincent, Bequia, Mustique? etc.

I have a couple of friends who independently have used SunSail and from what I gathered from them it was a good experience.
