Re: August Charter in the BVI's good idea or bad

Hello! It's 2024, and considering a sailing charter the 3rd week of August... wondering if the social/commercial scenes have changed at all in the USVI and BVI second half of August; are shops, restaurants, and bars still closed (til October) ?

Have you considered checking a few key websites yourself, like Sopers Hole and The Bitter End? Instead of asking others to do your work for you? That's what I would do if I was planning that trip which I've done almost half a dozen times...

Hi Stu. Of course I have, and I don't find much, if any, info on seasonal closures... I have emailed charter operators, marinas, etc.. in USVI/BVI and the Exumas (debating btw the 2 locations) ... radio silence...
So I was hoping for locals or live aboards/cruisers's info.

If you come in my area, the Cheseapake Bay, I don't need to do any online research to let you what's up
