If you have a "shore party" and the dink is back at the mother ship, then a handheld VHF can make things go easier (but please, please - don't clog up VHF16 but choose some other channel) but it isn't quite necessary in the BVI; every bar/restaurant has a VHF which could be used to call back home...
I consider all of my polo shirts to be "formal wear" in the BVI since they have a collar - so you've got multifunction gear
and really don't need to pack much at all. Often women require a bit more clothing
, but the BVI are as informal as they get and I'm willing to lay even odds that nobody
on this forum who has chartered there has returned with every single
piece of clothing
having seen use
