Re: First time chartering in BVI flotilla with kids

Great post and thread. Too late to help Kutsyy, as above, but after having gone to the BVI with three boys, 13, 10 and 2, I can tell you - it's paradise for all of them. Including the 2 year old - it just means finding a beach with sand every day.

As to provisions - we really should have used the grill more. Cooking in the galley for the relatively large crew - they all eat a ton - was a chore. I think throwing burgers, steaks and sausages on the bbq would have been much easier and it's something we'll do next time.

Re: First time chartering in BVI flotilla with kids

We chartered with a SunSail flotilla earlier this year and it sounds like a solution for you. The "flotilla" part was really loose.

We are here, thats where we're going see you their this evening and on the way checkout x and y, and be careful of z. When you get to the destination, anchor anywhere but there's a buoy here but they are available on radio.

We did have 2 technical questions, one we didn't know about, one self inflicted, but the support crew fixed it.

May give you the extra time to keep an eye on the kids.

You can safely skip the group evening meals unless you specifically want to mingle with others on the flotilla, but its very low key.
