BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS SAIL BOAT CHARTER ITINERARY

This archipelago of approximately 50 islands is considered by many as the yachting capital of the world. Covering a surface area of just 59 miles, and fringed by an all protecting reef, sailing here is a joy as we experience excellent sailing winds with the constant trades, but non of the associated atlantic swell. Sixteen of the palm-fringed islands are inhabited, including Necker Island, owned by Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson. The largest island is Tortola, where most of the population of 23,000 live and work, and where your charter is likely to begin.

You will probably arrive at the airport on Beef Island, Tortola. A short stroll and a tender ride later, you will be relaxing onboard Yacht Mustique, your luxury home for the next week or so. Once you are settled, and after a light lunch onboard, we set off, one of the smallest of the Virgin Islands, Marina Cay. Relax on the beach under the coconut palms and enjoy the tropical surroundings, or you can jump in the warm crystal clear tropical waters and snorkel round the small reef. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails are served in time for you to enjoy your first gorgeous sunset, after which dinner will be served in the main cockpit area under the stars. Enjoy their first tropical calm evening in Paradise.
After breakfast, we set off on a morning cruise to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. After this glorious and picturesque sail, we will anchor for you to discover this hauntingly beautiful part of the world, both above and below water.
After lunch, why not take the short walk to “DEVILS BAY”; a short but very special walk and is worth each step through the dense undergrowth. There is plenty time for snorkeling and enjoying the peace of this area before we set sail for the short hop to Spanish Town where we will anchor for the evening. A visit to the shops is a must! Dinner can be taken ashore or onboard.
After breakfast onboard, we sail to Long Bay, Virgin Gorda. Relax here for the remainder of the day and evening, spending the time enjoying the crystal clear water and virgin beach. Lunch onboard or as a picnic on the beach. Cocktails at sunset prior to another magnificent meal in the cockpit under the stars.

Try you hand at a spot of fishing or kayaking, before enjoying another superb meal onboard.
“Treasure Island” , a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson made todays destination famous, or Norman Island as the world now knows it. We stop of lunch to swim into the three famous pirate caves. After lunch, work around to the Bight for the night and anchor in a secluded spot to relax and explore the island for the rest of the day. Cocktails can be taken on famous Willy T’s which is a Brigantine pirate ship at anchor which acts as a restaurant and bar. This can be quite a lively place at night, so if it is nightlife you feel you need after these out of the way Blue Lagoons, then the Willy T is where you need to head for this evening. Dinner either at Willy T or onboard.
After breakfast, a leisurely cruise to Jost Van Dyke offers ample opportunity for fishing on the way. Sandy Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take your pick. Sandy Cay is a “must do” exploring adventure by foot. It is a short walk which commences on the beach and runs through thick coconut palms followed by thick undergrowth. This leads up to the top a a volcanic rock which is roughly 50 feet above the beach and then the path wanders back through the undergrowth to the palms and on to the beach.For the overnight stop, White Bay is secluded and quiet with amazing powdery white sand and crystal clear water. Try a swim to the only place ashore, the Soggy Dollar Bar and sample one or three of their famous Painkillers.
