Two Options

As for the sailing resume, look up ed-hamilton.com, a charter broker company. I have seen many recommendations for them and am starting to use them as I set up my first charter. They have an option to complete a sailing resume and they get back to you with the biggest they would recommend. They responded to me.

Another option to consider is to charter the boat but get a captain for at least a few days. It sounds like you will have little trouble getting a boat but including a captain is at the very least a safety factor. Can also consider it a week long sailing lesson.

I haven't been to the BVI's since 1994. The coral was still mostly healthy then. I'm planning to go back this June. Can someone comment on how things are holding up there? I did a charter in Belize in 2002 and was shocked at how little live coral there is (was) inside the barrier reef.

The coral is not as healthy as it was in 1994. Some areas are in better shape than others. Almost everywhere you will find "young" coral actively growing. The coral around the BVIs is in better shape than the coral around St Thomas/St John.

Go snorkeling at the Indians off Norman Island. We love the spot. It's deep, lots of variety in coral, fish and terrain. We think it's the best spot in the US and BVI.
