Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?
And Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas is the "big city", which I kind of enjoy in cruising, though not every night.
Cruz Bay on St John was fine as i recall.
Caveat: I've only been once, in 1977. We had 3 42-footers, 19 prep school kids from New England, and 5 "adults", meaning us 20-somethings.
We sailed out of Charlotte Amalie, to the nearby Islands, stopped in at Red Hook, then Cruz Bay, then Jost Van Dyke to enter with Brit customs, then Road Town Tortola, then the Baths, then Trellis Bay, then finally Virgin Gorda, then made our way back to Charlotte A. It was a hoot, more fun with the damn high school kids than without them, as it turned out.
So that 's how it was in 1977. But it made an impression, since I remember all our ports almost 40 years later...
