Bank Holidays – Boat Days and BBQs

The British Virgin Islands – as well as being blessed with stunning beaches and turquoise waters – also has an abundance of public holidays. These wonderful little nuggets of free time present the perfect opportunity to explore, island-hop and relax with friends. This past weekend we celebrated Territory Day – and what better way to do that than by stocking up the coolers and enjoying some sunny sailing around the islands and cays, a chance to really appreciate what this Territory has to offer.

The weather is scorching – make sure that you are fully prepared with plenty of icy-cold liquid refreshment. Re-hydrate people!

Day sail companies offer both locals and tourists excellent deals at this time of year, as the weather heats up and we enter the quiet season. The most commonly chosen route would start out of Tortola’s West End, heading to Sandy Spit and then onto White Bay, Jost Van Dyke – before winding up on the Willy-T at Norman Island, if any of you are still standing if you still have time. That being said, there really are no limits to the combinations of islands that you can try, and the bars and restaurants to sample.

Land ahoy! White Bay, Jost Van Dyke.
So let’s celebrate with some champagne…

Always ensure that you choose your crew mates carefully… Whenever possible I would recommend including an excellent French chef to guarantee an exceptional lunch aboard.

Now back to work for some quiet nights in and much needed recovery time before the coming weekend’s adventures…

Chef Regis can always be relied upon for both quality and quantity!! No one goes hungry on his watch…
Quashing potential mutiny and keeping the smaller members of crew in check… Victorious!
