DAY 1 : Village Cay Marina, Road Town, Tortola
Boarding starts at 18:00 on Saturday and so we have a lovely relaxed dinner onboard and a night in the marina getting to know your fellow sailors.
DAY 2 : Village Cay Marina to Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda
The first day of sailing! We leave the base in Tortola and head to the world famous 'Baths' on Virgin Gorda, a must see when in the BVIs. This National Park is comprised of huge granite boulders which form little pools of sea water on the edge of the beach. Meandering and climbing your way through these natural wonders is a great way to spend a few hours working up an appetite before lunch. There is a restaurant and bar at the top of The Baths and a beautiful, scenic walk down to Devil's Bay. In the afternoon, a short sail brings us to Spanish Town which has an array of shops and restaurants.
DAY 3 : Spanish Town to North Sound
A relaxed sail north and we sail into the iconic North Sound, a sailors paradise! This is the perfect place to snorkel, swim and paddle board as there are fantastic scenic reefs and tiny islands to explore. There are lots of atmospheric bars and restaurants ashore which are great for people watching and admiring the views out towards Mosquito, Prickly Pear, Eustatia and Necker Islands.
DAY 4 : North Sound to Anegada
Be prepared to enter heaven! Anegada, the only coral island in the BVI is a haven for nature lovers with its flamingos, iguanas and exotic birds. With pristine beaches, incredibly clear turquoise waters and fantastic snorkeling, you are unlikely to want to leave! A lobster dinner is almost compulsory here!
DAY 5 : Anegada to Trellis Bay
Today's sail takes us back towards the east coast of Tortola and to the small village of Trellis Bay. Those looking for an action packed afternoon can head over to Scrub Island or Guana Island for some walking or sightseeing whilst those wanting a slower pace can explore the small shops in Trellis Bay or relax in the water or on the boat with a good book.
DAY 6 : Trellis Bay to Jost Van Dyke
The smallest of the main islands but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in atmosphere! Home to the infamous Foxy's and Soggy Dollar Bar which are great fun both day and night with live music and a relaxed party atmosphere. There are some fantastic scenic walks up into the hills above Great Harbour.
DAY 7 : Jost Van Dyke to Norman Island
Curving around the west coast of Tortola and sailing through 'The Narrows' which is the stretch of water separating Tortola from St Johns in the US Virgin Islands, we carry on to Norman Island which is a must see destination for snorkelers and divers. 'The Caves' are a particularly popular spot, where you can see an abundance of marine life. Norman Island itself is said to be the inspiration for Robert Luis Stevenson's novel 'Treasure Island'.
DAY 8 : Norman Island to Village Cay Marina
It is only a short sail back to the base on Tortola so a stop at Peter Island is a fantastic opportunity to explore some more of the BVI's scenic beaches and coves. Once back on Tortola you might like to explore Road Town or jump in a taxi to the popular Cane Garden Bay.
