October Sailing in the BVI: Every year I go to the BVIs to work on my catamaran, Kia Ora. This year, after the maintenance is done, I’ll be cruising the BVIs for 10 days and I’m looking for company. This trip is open to all. The tentative dates are: Overnight in Hogs Bay Marina, East End, Tortola – Friday-3-October, Leave Marina on Saturday morning-4-October for points east. Return to Marina morning of Monday-13-October for afternoon flights/ferry back home.
It’s quieter in the BVI this time of year. Charters are just restarting from the hurricane season during August/September. The restaurants are re-opening and anchorages are not yet crowded. Sailing is wonderful as the winds are filling in from the summer quiet. Unlike springtime sailing, the water is warm like a bathtub.
Cost – Kia Ora has four cabins, each with a small queen bunk and a private head, suitable for two people. $175/cabin/day, or $87.50/person/day. The expenses for food, diesel, mooring fees, water will be pro-rated amongst all of the sailors, myself included. You can participate in as much or little of the sailing as you want. Cooking chores will be shared.
Kia Ora is also available for charter at other times, fully equipped.
