Sailing in Paradise is a dream of most sailors, yet most never get around to it. Spinnaker not only makes it possible but makes it easy. We have been making the dream come true in B.V.I. for almost 30 years. We make it safe, easy, affordable and memorable. Join us as an individual, couple, or cobble together a group of friends or family to fill a boat of your own.
The unspoiled islands of the British Virgins are renowned as one of the finest cruising locations in the world. Warm moderate trade winds, tranquil bays and beautiful clear water, make the BVI’s an unbelievable sailing destination. There are over 20 islands in the BVIs. Most of them offer good harbors and anchorages, restaurants and shops, places to visit, great diving and snorkeling, and all are rich with history and friendly people.
Our group will be using Sunsail 454 catamarans and a Sunsail 51 monohull for the trip. These yachts are equipped with 4 double state rooms which can accommodate one person or couple.
Cost per Cabin:
$6100 on Sunsail 454 4 cabin/ 5 head
$4600 on Sunsail 51 4 cabin/ 4 head
Dining: The food order is customized for each boat. Crew will get together and choose their own provisions. This includes breakfasts, lunches, snacks and any dinners that would be cooked aboard the boat. Members will get together before the trip to fill out the order forms. Each boat will be responsible for their food and beverage cost. A transom barbecue and a fully equipped galley are provided for cooking aboard although most dinners will be had ashore. Each boat is responsible for mooring ball costs and normally divided among the group. Airfare is not included but we can help you to get the right flights.
Bob Diamond will be leading the flotilla! Bob has been sailing professionally and teaching at Spinnaker Sailing in Redwood City since 1984. Bob is the head Instructor for Spinnaker Sailing and his favorite part of being an instructor is organizing and leading overseas flotilla charter trips. He’s been doing several trips a year since 1986. He also likes to do aerobatic flying, photography, stargazing, and scuba diving.
Take care of any remaining items checking out the boats. Sail to first nights destination at Cooper Island. The Beach Club is good for dinner. Snorkel at Cistern Point in the afternoon. Diving on The Rhone is an option for the next morning.
If not diving get over to the Baths early to catch a mooring ball in the morning. Then sail to North Sound to moor at either Saba Rock, Bitter End, or Leverick Bay
Scuba divers can dive with Sunchaser in the morning. There’s also watersports rentals at BEYC. It’s a good place to spend an extra night.
Sail up to Anegada. This island is so flat you can’t see it until you get close. Home of the big lobsters. Scooter or taxi to the beach at Loblolly Bay.
Sail to Marina Cay. Refill with fresh water. There’s good snorkeling along the Caminoe Island shore line.
Sail to Jost Van Dyke but stop at Monkey Point for snorkeling and possibly lunch on the boat. Jost is very layed back and West Indian in nature. The Painkiller was invented at The Soggy Dollar Bar in White Bay. Foxy’s is in Great Harbor.
Stop at Soper’s Hole for shopping or at The Indians for snorkeling on the way to Norman Island for the night. Norman Island is the place that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Snorkel the caves at Treasure Point
Check in the boats at the base by 11:00, then have lunch. Ferry to St. Thomas if flying home from there or taxi to BVI airport if departing from there. It’s nice to stay the night before flying home.
