Passage Fl-Keys to USVI. Where to Land there?

Hello

I don't have my US Virgin Islands sailing guide with me, and we're planning a passage from the Florida Keys to USVI (via the "I65" meridian). Where would be a nice marina to dock at in the USVI (not the BVI) for a few days to recoup?

Thanks in advance.

Yacht Haven Grande, Crown Bay and American Yacht Harbor are three marinas that may have room for a cat on St Thomas. Green Cay Marina might be an option on St Croix. Have a safe passage here.

On St Thomas, we stayed in Crown Bay Marina a few times, and also American Yacht Harbor. Both had their good points. IGY has purchased AYH since we were there, so things may have changed.

HUD, I thought they kept all those IPs together out at AYH. :-)
Since IGY took over AYH the only noticeable change is an increase in fees...

That's how I convinced my wife to go cruising. I chartered an IP 380 just like ours from Island Yacht Charters. After two weeks of sailing around the Virgin Islands in February, she said she didn't want to go back home.
