Post BVI in June or July/ Intro

Hi all! Midwestern sailor, who unfortunately is selling the day cruiser...kids don't enjoy near as much as the speed boat. However, I'm not letting go and have convinced the wife to revisit my favorite destination, the BVI's. We went sailing with good friends of ours a couple years back in the BVI's and had a blast. Great wind, perfect weather and lots to enjoy. Last time we went it was the beginning of June, our plans next year only workout for a party of 6 starting in mid July. I've been told July and June are basically the same wind/weather wise, but wanted to get an unbiased opinion? ...pending we don't have a Hurricane or Tropical Depression, can July be just as good as the June trip we took in 2013? Any thoughts or words to help with a decision would be appreciated...if we get a negative response for going with friends in July, we might ditch the crew and go solo in mid June. Appreciate the read, Mark

Re: BVI in June or July/ Intro

ha, yes I did…was getting antsy and then found the charter thread. You can just call me triple post! Thanks for the advice! We just booked for July and agree with you on having a lighter crowd during off peak times. Could not image what it would be like trying to get a mooring ball at Jost! Thanks again for the insight!

Getting a mooring ball at Jost (White Bay or Great Harbour) isn't that bad as long as you get there early enough even in the busy season. Around New Year's Eve it is a real challenge.

Just curious how early would I need to get a mooring ball at White Bay? …last time we had to park at Great Harbor and dingy over to white. Also, Monohull's have any issues? Thanks
