Newbie

Hello to all, I have chartered the BVI several times and I am looking for more information from sailors, owners and locals to the BVI. I have a special place in my heart for the BVI and I am also open to other beautiful isalnd to consider. I have sailing experience however when I charter I like to have a paid skipper aboard to alllow for the most relaxing holiday.

Welcome to the community! I live in the BVI on land. I agree about having a paid skipper on board.

I am a single female and spent 10+ years sailing and living aboard a 30' Catalina sailboat; ALONE. At that time I had the energy and good health to do so. I maintained the boat and of course was my own captain.

I am so glad I did it THEN, while I could, as due to accidents (later on) and arthritus, I couldn't do it now, without a hired captain. Yet, I am lonesome for the sea again and miss going from island to island in the BVI soaking up the different cultures on each island. At least, for now, my home overlooks the Caribbean Sea and a favorite anchorage, so I am able to see some of my old sailing buddies now and then.

Good luck in your endeavors. For more BVI info, read DearMissMermaid.Com
