Re: Christmas Winds in the BVI

Yes, the Christmas winds are all they are reputed to be BUT once in the BVI you have a lee most of the time--that's why they are such a Charter Boater's Dream Come True.

The secret is to START and END your charter from either Red Hook Bay or Totola. Then you have the wind and no sea.
IF however you begin from Charlotte Amalie you have the "Beak From Hell". It is only 7 miles but OH MAMMA what a struggle. best avoided.

That beat breaks a lot of spirits.
