The Virgin Islands are acknowledged as  among the friendliest of all around cruising grounds in the world.  Minimal tides, reliable trade winds, good visibility and year 'round comfortable temperatures  make this a great place for a cruising vacation. You are always within the sight of land and near a safe anchorage. This allows you to sail as much or as little as you wish.  Easy flights from the US and Europe add to their popularity. While the Virgin Islands are divided between the British and US islands, customs and immigration present only a minimal inconvenience for those wishing to cross the border.

    Air arrival to the Virgin Islands is accomplished by direct flight to St. Thomas from a number of US gateway cities or through San Juan Puerto Rico and an island hopper flight to Tortola or St. Thomas. Inter-island ferry boats operate a frequent schedule between all the larger islands. 

The Virgin Islands are also, our home, for 28 years. Both the US and the British Virgin Islands are becoming increasingly more popular. Most of this congestion is limited to the a few popular anchorages with expanded shore side facilities. The large number of anchorages found in these waters are still ample to provided uncrowded conditions for those desiring this on all but the busiest few weeks.Francsis Bay, St. John

These destinations are favored by the European crowd. St. Martin and Antigua both have direct from Europe flights making getting there easy. St. Martin is easily reached from North America. You can get to Antigua, but it is a challenge. 

 Plan on increasing the size of your yacht (and budget) when chartering these locations in the winter season. Anchorages are limited, dockage is is usually encouraged when available. In Spring time typically seas calm some and more modestly priced yachts often relocate from the nearyby Virgin I and to offer in the Leeward Island waters.

   The Grenadines - the Spice Islands, remote and private these coral islands are anchored by St. Vincent to the north and Grenada to the south.  More challenging conditions prevail in these windward islands. One-way charters can be arranged for those on a tight time schedule. This can add St. Lucia to the Itinerary. It is a good place to start the trip especially if you have more than a week to sail.
