About: British Virgin Islands (BVI)
As per the usual, I got really grumpy with this winter's dismal, cold, snowy, depressing weather. This gave me plenty of reason to pack a small backpack of stuff and head to the Caribbean for a much needed thawing out. This winter's trip was to the British side of the unbeatable Virgin Islands (otherwise known as BVI). 4 of us chartered a 36ft Beneteau sailboat from the Moorings in Road Town, Tortola. We spent 7 glorious days touring the archipelago, stopping at Norman Island, Cooper Island, Virgin Gorda (Bitter End Yacht Club and The Baths), Jost Van Dyke (and Sandy Cay), and Tortola. I also got a chance to dive the spectacular wreck of the HMS Rhone off Salt Island. The map below shows our trip.
