Short term BB charter in the BVI??

Is there any way to charter/rent BB for a day or two at a time in Tortola?

We'll be staying on Tortola for the entire month of March, and are looking for a way to get in some sailing without signing up for 5+ days, which is the normal minimum.

Does anyone know if we could 'walk up' to a charter company and get a boat for one or two days? Perhaps a boat that has just returned from a regular charter and isn't scheduled to go out again soon? If we could do that, we'd probably repeat it once or twice -- easy money for a charter company.

Alternatively, does anyone you know keep a boat in Tortola and rent it out for BB day sailing?

We have BB chartered many times in the BVI from SunSail and others. We have a boat on Chesapeake Bay and have strong sailing resumes.

We're not interested in day sailing on the 'cattle boats' that cater to non-sailor tourists. Just looking for a way to get out on the water.

We'd really appreciate any ideas you might have (other than forget about it). Thanks

I think Swain out of Nanny Cay has IC24s (modified J24) for rent. Of course Bitter End has many sailing vessels to rent for the day.

Sunsail/Moorings in Road Town has some daysailers that they use for their sailing school. Don't know for sure, but if any are available they might rent you one for a day. Especially since you are a former customer.
