Most beginning bare boaters start off in the British Virgin Islands
. The sailing is easy, the water
is beautiful, and there are lots of choices of charter
companies with varying price
ranges. There are lots of places in the Caribbean
, but for a first time charter
I can think of no place equal to the BVI‘s.
However, I don’t think you’re gonna be able to come this July. Almost all of the airports are closed. Every country and island that I know of has severe restrictions on even moving your boat
. Sailing between islands is absolutely prohibited. We are in Martinique
, and the bareboat
charter companies here have shut down for the season. They are trying to use the time to do maintenance
on the boats and other things to keep the employees busy. Very difficult economic times.
Best of luck with your vacation
plans, but this summer is not a good one for travel.
