We have chartered through Conch twice, both times were fantastic. Boat a bit older, (about the same vintage as what I sail here). First was a 40 ft. CC Beneteau
, 2nd was a 473 Beneteau. Both sailed well, equipment
was in good shape, instrumentation was not as good as I would have liked, but a handheld GPS
brought from home with a laptop
with all the charts
helped a lot.
I would recommend them to anyone. Contact them by phone
and see what they will require from you before committing your self to having a Capt for an extended period of time.
Some important things to consider in the BVI is where do you want to go and what do you want to see.
I highly recommend the full moon party at Trellis bay:
Full Moon Party Schedule at Trellis Bay in the British Virgin Islands
get there early after noon of the day before the party to get a mooring
ball. YES it is family friendly, (unlike the one at Bomba's shack). Yes, this is worth scheduling your trip around. Also consider the Leverick Bay Dinghy Poker Run May 27, 2013
Get your Dinghy out and come join us in the excitement of our annual Dinghy Poker Run. Come dressed as your favorite pirate. Start your dinghy engine and live the Golden Age of Piracy through an exciting journey to fight your way with a water gun and collect a card at each location of the magnificent North Sound. This unique event is a localʼs favorite and all money raised goes to the benefit of charity. Complete information available at pokerrunbvi.com.
We did this the last time we were there (2010 and it was a blast, again kid ok).
I suggest that the BVI would be better (lower population/more land) not as crowded ashore, more places to drop anchor/tie up to a mooring ball. More beaches to explore, etc.
