DUE TO HEAVY DEMAND, WE ARE NOW PUTTING ANY NEW REGISTRANTS ON THE WAIT LIST, UNTIL WE CAN SORT OUT THE YACHT AND CABIN ARRANGEMENTS.
SCWDC's next dream vacation is a sailing adventure in the beautiful British Virgin Islands (BVI). We will charter at least four yachts, including two 46' mono hull yachts (6 crew members) and two 48' catamarans (8 crew members). Each yacht will be skippered by a qualified SCWDC captain.
All sleeping berths are for two people. Thus, singles desiring to go on this trip should ideally register with a cabin mate. Otherwise, please contact the trip leader to see what arrangements can be made. Options are to share the berth with someone, pay a single supplement, or sleep in the saloon area, where a comfortable sleeping berth can be made. All yachts have en-suite heads, meaning each cabin has its own head (bathroom)
The mono hull yachts feature 3 separate cabins (each with a marine queen bed) plus a berth in the convertible saloon, and shore-powered air conditioning. See mono hull yacht specifications and details here.
The catamarans feature 4 roomier cabins (each with a marine queen bed), plus a berth in the convertible saloon, and shore-powered air conditioning. See catamaran yacht specifications and details here.
The low member trip price of only $920/pp (mono hull) or $1,470/pp (catamaran) includes the following:
NOTE: We are offering this trip without airfare. This allows attendees to fly down to Tortola before the sailing charter, or to stay on afterwards. It also allows attendees to use frequent flyer miles if available. Right now, Delta is offering round trip air fares from Reagan National (DCA) to Beef Island, Tortola (EIS) for as little as $575/pp. It is also possible to fly into St. Thomas, and then take a high-speed ferry over to Tortola.
PASSPORTS are required, with an expiration date at least 6 months after the trip return date.
Attendees are requested to arrive at Sunsail headquarters no later than 4 PM on April 21, 2020, for briefings, provisioning review and check outs. At 6 PM, we will board our respective yachts, conduct yacht inspections and settle in for our first night aboard.
Additional notes: Food and beverage expenses are not included as each yacht and crew will have to decide their own food/restaurant plan. Figure on approximately $200/ pp for the week, but actual costs may vary widely. Advance provisioning and starter kits are available from Sunsail. We have estimated fuel costs for each yacht, but actual costs may vary based on wind and weather.
