By Robert Curley. There are thousands of islands in the Caribbean, so why do so many travelers only visit one at a time? The typical Caribbean vacation means flying to a destination and staying put.
One way to save money on your sailing vacation is to rent your boat directly from the owner. What should you do? There are now several underwater webcams at Saba Rock and Cooper Island.
We are SO excited, and are beginning to think about what we'll need to bring. Overall, we plan to pack very light with casual clothes, bathing suits, and cover ups. Any tips on other things to bring that we might not be thinking of?
Because of RVing, we made a new friend around 1. Like us, he RVs full-time, but he used to live on a sailboat. After months of talking about it, we finally decided that we would go on a sailing trip together.
Our family vacation this summer was a sailing trip through the British Virgin Islands. They have two daughters the same age as our two teen children, so it was a good time to take this once in a lifetime trip with them. For nine days we shared a foot catamaran with their family for a family adventure, exploring the BVIs, mooring at different places along the way.
It was the first morning of my five-day trip aboard a catamaran cruising the British Virgin Islands. Just as I settled into the cockpit with a cup of coffee and a book, a double rainbow appeared above the lush hills of Cooper Island. Then a turtle surfaced with a splash several feet away, looking in my direction before submerging again.
This was our first time bareboat chartering in the BVI and hopefully be the first of many! They are great. We had the 52' Tilda and she was a beautiful boat, super spacious and brand new.
The British Virgin Islands often foster images of intrepid sailors and adventurers living their own version of a Jimmy Buffett song: sailing the seas, relentlessly drinking rum, stopping at hidden beaches, and exploring deserted islands. Standing behind the wheel with the wind whipping at your hair as the sails of your boat take you from island to island sounds wonderful to many of us. It sounds too expensive!
