Hi all! I'm new to this sight, and am so impressed with the amount of great information on here - I've learned quite a bit from you all!
Next week, my family
and I will be cruising the BVI's in a Leopard
44, and considering the recent change in weather
, I'm trying to re-plan our itinerary to provide the most comfortable ride.... Winds will be high out of the east (over 30 knots Monday night) until Invest 90L passes through, which from what I've been able to gather might not be until late Tuesday... We were originally going to start the trip in Trellis Bay to pick up additional passengers on Monday night, then head
down towards Scrub island on Tuesday, but I'm wondering if it might be best to go somewhere protected on Tuesday, such as the North Sound of Virgin Gorda - any suggestions? Based on the weather
, does anyone have a recommended itinerary? We're unfortunately only in the area until Saturday, but we return to the Sunsail base Friday evening. This will be my second trip to BVIs, and our first experience sailing a Cat.
Here was my original itinerary:
Monday night - Trellis Bay - overnight in Marina Cay
Tuesday - Scrub Island, transition to Cane Garden Bay via little Camanoe passage
, afternoon sail to Jost Van Dyke and overnight there
Wednesday Tortola, visit Sopers Hole, transition to Norman Island and overnight at the Bight
Thursday - Caves, snorkeling at the Indians, Peter Island, sail to Virgin Gorda and overnight
Friday - the Baths, sail down towards Roadtown for 5pm arrival.
