Re: BVIs in Early June ???

I tend to put together an itinerary for all our trips. I think that's half the fun. Usually it works out exactly as planned (with minor changes) and sometimes we throw it out and wing it.

Re: BVIs in Early June ???

I been there twice in July - no problems. It is warm. Marinas are the worst place to be.

Not planning on hanging around them much; but out of curiosity, why?

You don't get as much wind in a marina making it much warmer and if you are on a slip, you can't face into the wind.

Re: BVIs in Early June ???

Hot and muggy would seem to make for uncomfortable sleeping on the hook, without AC.
We've been to the BVIs in Nov. and SO always grumbles about the heat at night, so I'd be concerned that it would be pretty HOT without an AC in June. I'd probably be OK with it (I am much more heat tolerant), but he would not be.

If you charter a nice pricey boat with AC, and you plan on docking at a marina with shore power each night, that would be cool and comfy. But we love to anchor out. So I don't foresee us doing a summertime charter for that reason.

Here are your probabilities (if you've ever studied statistics, you know that this means nothing for any individual day...)
