Re: Bet your Marina doesn't do this on Opening day!

My marina doesn't do that for opening day because it's open all year (technically it does close for named storms).

Re: Sailing USVI/BVI from CYOA Yacht Charters

There are ample places to go around St John and St Thomas to spend a week or more for those that don't wish to enter the BVI. As mentioned previously, St John has numerous pristine beaches not...

Re: Custom canvas sail covers etc.

I used Diego's as well and had a great experience. The sail cover arrived in about 7 days and fit perfectly. The price was very reasonable.

Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?
