British Virgin Islands Bareboat Flotilla

hosted by Spinnaker Sailing School
  • 9 Days & 8 Nights
  • Dec 1 - 9, 2023

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.

Details

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.
