Sailing the British Virgin Islands

Whether you’re a seasoned skipper, or a new sailor looking to find your sea legs, the waters surrounding the British Virgin Islands are some of the best for sailing in the Northern Hemisphere, if not the world.  Drawing in thousands of people to her pristine waters, the cool Caribbean provides an excellent cruising location for you to take advantage of the trade winds,  predictable weather patterns, gorgeous views and tranquil surroundings.  Winds tend to blow northeast to southeast at 10-25 knots, providing optimal ammunition for your main sail from the moment you cast off from the dock, and The Sir Francis Drake Channel offers deep-water passages to many islands scattered throughout the Caribbean.

Looking to tie up after a long day on the waters?  Take part in a membership at the gorgeous new state-of-the art YCCS superyacht marina and clubhouse in the protected North Sound which features 38 slips for yachts up to 100 meters (328 feet) and a draft of up to 9.1 meters (30 feet).  With a central T-shaped dock measuring 267 meters, it is well protected from prevailing winds, ocean swells, and is free of surge.

It’s time to let loose your sail and experience paradise from the sea.
