Virgin Islands Yacht Charter Summary Information
The British Virgin Islands are considered the world's sailing
capital for a reason. Consistent 10-20 knot winds and easy line-of-sight
navigation make hopping islands around Tortola a breeze. Winds tend to be
stronger in the winter and weaker during the summer. Most sails will be
between 5 and 10 nautical miles with carefree deep waters in between. A
multitude of anchorages and moorings make the BVIs the perfect place for
beginner sailors to the most seasoned of sailors.
