Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

Rather than ask on this forum whether you have the credentials to charter a boat, why not ask the charter company you would like to use? Most companies will have you fill out a simple resume and...

Re: Tips for not getting cheated on fuel when chartering.

Good points. It is all a numbers game and the bottom line is that you are paying for convenience. Whether you pay upfront and don't realize it or pay at the end and it is broken out, you are still...

Re: BVI May 2015

Adding to that, beating along the south shore of Tortola leaves many anchorages to stop if the crew is tired of the ride. Beating along the north side is very open after Cane Garden Bay. No place...

Re: guest arriving St Thomas where to pick up?

No Minnie it is not off-limits. In the next few weeks there will be a few mega yachts Med moored to it. I see larger vessels pull up there to be fueled from tanker trucks. For more average sailing...

Re: guest arriving St Thomas where to pick up?

Nothing wrong with that plan at all. Why not just spend the night in Brewers? By the time she lands and gets off the plane and you get to your boat it will be well after 6. Why not have a cocktail...
