Re: BVI Crusing Guides/Info

I think, so many cruising companies are offering beautiful and adventurous destinations for yachting and sailing. Reviews from friends are the best reference and recommendation. Dubai is also an excellent destination for yachting.

Enjoy your charter!
FYI, I booked my upcoming BVI charter through Ed Hamilton Company, and they sent me the Scotts guide free of charge. It's one of many benefits of using a booking agent.

We need Dodge (Abacos Guide) to get down to the BVI's and write a proper cruising guide. The Scott guide is excellent for shoreside resources but very poor for navigational reference.

Yes, but not of the VI's. That is the Scott guide by the same company.

Thanks for the reply. I've booked with the Moorings. They do not send a cruising guide but have a link to the Scott guide.

Re: BVI Crusing Guides/Info

Most charter companies offer them. Some free, some not. Your charter company will also give you a briefing and likely a pretty good itinerary. If it is your first time there, it is probably wise to follow it. What company did you book with?
