The April 2020 vacation to the British Virgin Islands was postponed due to COVID limitations both in BVI and the USA. The trip was rescheduled to and operated in April 2022. Previous registrants were automatically registered for the new trip. The following write-up below is left in for reference.
In 2023, there is a discussion in the SCWDC Sailing Program about planning another overseas trip. Contact the Sailing Chair, David Toms, email@example.com.
Join "Captain" David Toms for a fabulous sailing vacation in the British Virgin Islands in April, 2022! We're planning to charter several large (46'+) sailing yachts (both catamarans and mono hulled sloops) , sailing out of Tortola to distant shores and good times. All yachts feature private cabins with ensuite heads/showers. For more information and to register for the trip, visit the website event page. This will take you to the BVI Sailing Regatta, April 21 - April 28, 2022 event. It was postponed from 2021 to 2022. Hooray!, the COVID limitations are behind us. Thank you, Skipper David.
Stretching throughout the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands are a kaleidoscope of aquamarine waters, sun-soaked harbors, and white-sand beaches. Distinct ports of call can be found among the more than 25 pristine islands that make up the BVI.
Travel windward through the British Virgin Islands and catch the steady trade winds as they carry you to nearby destinations. Navigation is a breeze between islands lined with protected bays and sounds formed for easy anchoring. Throughout the islands you will find any of your requirements just a short trip away, from on board provisions to onshore restaurants and a night out. With The Moorings’ base in Road Town, Tortola, you are assured of receiving the support you need to make your trip, from beginning to end, a smooth cruising experience. Those new to the chartering scene will find the tranquil seas and easily plotted courses of the BVI's a perfect place to build upon their experience. And whether you are at the helm or resting on the sundeck you will find there is nothing like island hopping from the deck of your own yacht.
Throw away the to-do list and leave your day to chance, where you can search for turtles off the shores and find yourself gazing across the sea from a hilltop bar. Fill all your senses with spectacular scenery, delectable cuisine, and soft-sand beaches. The coral atoll of Anegada is the resting point of many a sunken ship and offers amazing underwater views for diving. From sprawling beaches to small villages you’re sure find your own reason to cruise back on another return voyage.
