We chartered a boat from the island packet
guy in red hook 10yrs ago so we could try out that boat,while we were looking for a boat. We went in the fall as they were running a special. It was great weather
, temps were moderate, we had rain only 2days of the 10 we were down there. Good sailing but not alot of wind
, the winds dont come in the VIS till december, that is when it goes from 10-15knts to 20 plus..
Fall is a great time, we found the BVIS wonderful, i even had a dental emergency
and found a dentist who was wonderful on st john. Most shops were open, most business, since we dont eat out or do the bar scene it didnt bother us if stuff was closed or not. We got a great deal on the 10days we were down, good experience using the boat,and deciding it was not on the list of boats we wanted and was a worth while charter
for us, I recommend fall (we went mid november)
and had a great time..
