I'm the Marketing
Manager for Sunsail and couldn't help but chime in here. You have been getting some great advice, its so nice to see!
I would definitely recommend moving your trip to October or November if you want to go to the BVI, that is just because of the risk of weather
messing up your travel plans. We have flotillas as mentioned in the BVI which would be a great option for you all, you could charter
a small mono hull
if you would like it to just be the two of your on board and would have access to a lead crew for the duration of the trip, they will help answer any of your questions, you can hire your own skipper
for a flotilla as well.
If you are thinking Croatia
, which is gorgeous by the way, we have a new product called a Hero Flotilla based there in which you go on Flotilla with a skipper and get your ICC certification
while you are sailing for the week. This is incredible because it opens you up to sailing in the Med anytime you want in future years! (This is something I think lots of people on the blog might be excited about as the ICC has long been something which holds people back from getting a chance to sail Med destinations at will.) Here's a link, we just launched it last week: Learn How to Sail Vacationing in Croatia | Sunsail USA
Hope that helps a bit, feel free to email
me with any questions, I love to see new people getting on a charter, you will never want to stay in a hotel
