The British Virgin Islands, or BVI is well known for it's ideal sailing conditions and charter companies that cater to those who like to add a little adventure into their vacations. We've taken a total of 7 BVI sailing vacations and each time we look forward to going back. It's a special place for us, and so we've decided to share a glimpse of just how much fun and romantic this style of adventure vacation can be. 

So, this is the start of 7 posts dedicated to sailing in the British Virgin Islands. We're going to take you on our trip with us through videos, photographs, and information on how to make the most of a BVI Bareboat Charter Vacation along with some of the hot spots along the way.

We arrived at the Sunsail base in Road Town, Tortola the evening before our adventure began, which is always our suggestion. Arriving the day before allows you to get situated at the docks, head over to the grocery store to stock up on supplies and food, and get a chart briefing with the Sunsail staff.

Island time isn't the same as the rest of the world, so slow down the moment you get there and don't expect the hustle bustle attitude you are probably used to. The sun rises and sets on these islands with worry free style, so just get in that mode and let your vacation kick in.

In our next BVI post we head out on the open water and visit a great snorkeling spot for the day along a rock formation called The Indians, and settle in for the night in a cove on the west side of Norman Island known as The Bight.

Below are a few photos of our arrival into Beef Island Airport, and the Road Town Sunsail Base. Look forward to sharing more of our BVI sailing adventure along with tips and ideas for having the time of your lives.
