SHARE THE SAIL –WELCOME BACK TO THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
Let’s help them come back to life!
NEW DATE: February 2nd – 9th 2019
(OLD DATE: 11/17-24/2018)
The British Virgin islands has always been the epitome of cruising, and it’s time to go back end re-discover it’s beauty!
The people of the BVI’s have worked hard and long to recover from the two Category 5 Hurricanes that hit them this season. They are back, and are holding out open arms, as well as plenty of specials and discounts.
We are working with the folks at Proteus Charters and have reserved 6 catamarans for those who want to join us “By The Cabin” on a flotilla Charter, ending with a great beach party!
Most of the charter companies that advertise with us are offering specials on Bare-Boat charters for those who prefer to “go it on their own!” Also most of the resorts, bars and restaurants on the islands have offered specials for the two week period from Feb 1-15, 2019.
Participants who sail with us will share the sail, by sharing the navigation, galley duties and piloting. There will be a well-experienced skipper from our staff for any emergencies, but make no mistake, these are “Share The sail” events to give the experience needed for people who want to “get out there” and want to know more about the cruising lifestyle.
We will have some double cabins that have separate berths. For those who may be traveling solo but want to save a few bucks by sharing. just email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to match you with a boat-mate to share the cabin.
What’s it cost – book now and travel discounts.
We keep it simple and affordable. We have the boats (8 of them!) all reserved. They are all catamarans! This is the place for Cats!
Costs (Includes the boat, insurance, fuel, damage waivers, an experienced skipper on board and partial provisioning):
February 2nd – 9th 2019, double occupancy cabin
$2,600 pp double occupancy
$3,600 pp single occupancy
We ask for a $1000 deposit (refundable for 30 days) The balance will be due a few weeks prior to the event.
SPECIAL NOTICE: We are trying to help the BVI’s reach “total recovery” from the damage, and are asking all of the charter companies that advertise with us to offer special rates during that period for people who want to bare-boat charter their own boats. We will list these specials here as they become available.
If you’d prefer your group do a Bare-Boat Charter with any of these companies instead of our flotilla “By-The-Cabin” charter. You are more than welcome to. Thos who do book their own boats or sail in with their own boats are welcome to join us for the Share The Sail Itinerary and events. There is only a $100 pp fee to join the event with your own boat, or with bare boat charters.
BOOK IT NOW!
$100 PER PERSON for those on their own boats or who bare-boat charter to join our activities.
The plan is to visit many of the places that were damaged, but have come back and want to host events for our group. The will include special days and evening reserved for those who are participating in the “Welcome Back to the BVI’s” flotilla. The people who are on the by the cabin “share the Sail” are automatically included, so to give those who are there on their own boats, or are bare-boat chartering, we don’t want them to be left out, right?
So here’s the deal. If you plan on being in the islands, the welcome back event actually goes from the 1st of February to the 15th, but the Share The Sail is between the 2nd & 9th. Those who sign up to participate will be invited to these private events. So if you are sailing in with the Salty Dawg, or have your own boat there, or are bare-boat chartering, this will get you the itinerary for the Share the Sail, and your invitation to participate in many of the events that are being planned. The $100 is a one time fee, and covers the itinerary and intro to the events and parties that are being arranged.
The Base has moved to Scrub Island! Don’t worry, it’s even easier to get to than the old base! Map to New Dream Yacht Charter Base on Scrub Island There is a free Ferry from Trellis Bay (next to the airport) to Scrub Base.
