What an amazing adventure! 10 days of relaxation and great sailing. The 2010 OCSC BVI Flotilla, being my first, definitely lived up to expectations. We had consistent breezes of up to 25 knots with smooth seas that allowed us to sail from one island to the next in no time at all. My favorite being the 8.5 knot cruising speed on a beam reach from Anegada to beautiful Bitter End. Besides all of the great sailing there was plenty of swimming, snorkeling, and of course dancing. Every anchorage seemed better than the previous one. Lots of time was spent relaxing on the beach soaking up sunshine and sipping BVI’s famous “Painkiller’s”. We all ate like kings enjoying fresh seafood in oceanfront restaurants and on the boat. But I would have to the say the best part was getting to know my crew and the other members of the flotilla, sharing stories, and making new friends. In our time spent in the BVI’s we were able to do alot, here’s a quick summary: Danced at Willy T’s in the Bight on Norman Island, snorkeled or dove the Wreck of the Rhone, survived the rain and lightning at Cooper island, swam and relaxed at the Baths and Devil’s Bay on Virgin Gorda, posed for photos at the red phone booth on Marina Cay, ate the famous Anegada Lobsters, lived it up at the lavish Bitter End Yacht Club, snorkeled and swam with the fish at George Dog, visited the world famous Foxy’s on Jost Van Dyke, and finally said farewell to the beautiful BVI’s on our last night in Soper’s Hole. I can’t wait to go back and if you have never been then you need to put it on your bucket list… somewhere near the top.
