The BVI are great cruising grounds with beautiful scenery and plentiful anchorages
, bars, retaurants and beaches within daysails.
I would take provisioning
out of your boat

has a store to stock up on supplies) and boats will have sufficient room for provisions for several days. I've been at the docks at Sunsail, Moorings and other charter
companies when the charter
boats return and the amount of food
and supplies left over is stupendous and certainly forms a large part of the dock-worker's bonus income!
How many people are you planning per boat
? The newer cats all have simple rigging
and are, as far as heavily loaded catamarans can be, relatively quick. Most destinations are within a couple of hours easy sail for even the smallest monohulls. The furthest distance in the BVI would be from Soper's Hole to Anegada
and (if it weren't almost dead into the wind
90% of the time) only about 35nm.
Perhaps our wakes will cross in October - if you see a blue boat named "Zanshin" in an anchorage then come on over (or better yet, invite me over
