If the boat is "Fine" it is still a great place to cruise
. If you have never cruised tha VI/BVI then you would be missing one great oportunity.
Heading out to the big blue is a lot like work.
I love the bahamas
(There now) but you cannot put a timetable to cruising there due to the weather
and places to jump on a plane are not the easiest.
I agree...and I am quite partial to the BVI. I think its a good idea to get some sailing in and around the BVI to check out possible issues. And the BVI has so much to offer in terms of delightful original restaurants...no fast food
here! Charming, Warm and friendly people and stunning scenery. There are wonderful recomendations on a thread in this forum posted by Busyengineer, as well as Traveltalkonline.com.
Have a lovely time!
