I just joined Sailnet

I just stumbled across Sailnet as i was searching for Caribbean charters and sailing distances. When I was 22 I sailed from Miami to St Lucia and made our way back to Miami via about 25 Caribbean Islands on a sail training vessel owned by S.A.L.T.S. (sail and life training society) out of Victoria British Columbia, Canada.

I am interested in taking my wife (who i met on the S.A.L.T.S. trip) and our two kids 8 & 5 to the B.V.I.'s. Any pointers.

There's frisky sailing in the winter months, and it eases as spring develops. Depends on what kid of sailingyou want to experience? The BVI is a great choice! Have fun with the family, and be safe......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Welcome Aboard both of you....Freightman you should have introduced your self in a new thread..you will get lost possibly in this one.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Welcome! Always good to see another BCer on the board.

Which SALTS boat were you on? We watched the Pacific Swift being built at Expo 86, and often see her out on our travels in the summer.. as I recall the Robertson II (sadly recently lost) and the Chemainus were also part of the fleet.

btw highly recommend Caribbean sailing, esp if you can get away for the BC blahs around February/March.
