The BVI is probably the largest sailing ground for bareboat charters. Nearly every charter company has a base in the BVI including The Moorings, SunSail, Dream Yacht Charters, etc.

The winds are great year-round, everything is fairly deep and safe, the anchorages/mooring fields are plentiful, and you can find or avoid the parties!

You'll find dozens of charter destinations in the BVI including Jost Van Dyke (Foxy's and Soggy Dollar), The Indians, Willy T's, the Baths, Anegada, etc.

The BVI has an entire collection of songs from artists like Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, etc.

If you bareboat charter, BVI is bound to be on your list.

BVI was my first sailing experience, and I am glad that it was. If sailing, or bareboat sailing is new to you, BVI offers a great experience that is comparatively easy, and extremely rewarding. The sailing conditions in BVI tend to be very nice most of the year, and most people sail in a lap around the islands that offers reasonably short sails in deep water. There are many anchorages and bays full of mooring balls to tie up to. BVI boasts a great mix of secluded islands and quite bays, along with spots known for bars, restaurants, and night life. There are several places to get more fuel and water along the way, and if you are looking for a little bit longer sail, you can head out to Anegada (14 miles or so from Virgin Gorda). I've been twice, and think that BVI is just a great, lower stress, and beautiful place to sail.
