Our 7th annual 2011 British Virgin Islands Women Sailing Adventure turned out fantastic. This year we had two 7 - day trips, each with a full crew of 6 and 7. Our first crew came from across Canada – British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia and the second crew came from Ireland and across the USA – Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, Alaska, Florida.
One of our first crew was celebrating her 50th birthday and I was blessed to manifest a very special birthday event on our own private tropical beach on a private island owned by a famous local person. We arrived to the sunny tropical beach late afternoon, swimming, great food over the open grill and other party events took place. Here are a few photos with other photos being reserved for crew eyes only. The birthday girl had a number of first time’s on her BVI Sailing Adventure.
We even got to use the island during the second trip for a morning Yoga practice and a french toast breakfast over the outdoor grill.
The weather on our first trip was great with sunshine and winds between 15 and 19 knots. The second trip was more of a challenge with high winds between 22 and 28 knots during the day and gusting up to 35 knots at night. The second crew got lots of sailing and really learned how to harness the power of winches. Regardless, we sailed, swam and snorkeled every day.
Every single day was filled with great sailing, swimming and snorkeling, full moon parties, birthday parties, pirate parties and fantastic food aboard. Get a group of women together with all of the right ingredients and they sure know how to have fun!
We did enjoy delicious food ashore at a few interesting locations. One is called the Last Resort on a small island cay surrounded by reefs. The only way there is with the dinghy. There are a few lovely animals that live there and one decided to enjoy some left over!
I keep coming back each year because of the great weather, fantastic sailing, beaches are beautiful, underwater life is incredible and many of the islands are simple and quiet.
It is great to have repeat clients that love coming on our annual BVI Sailing Adventures. Thank you all that continue to make this happen and I look forward to next year. New dates coming shortly.
