Ted Kakuris posts a great BVI trip report on Virgin Island Sailing. In mid-June 2011, he chartered Jeanneau 52 from Conch Charter and set sail on a great itinerary hitting all the great bareboat charter locations around the BVIs.
Ted highly recommends getting information from VirginIslandSailing.com and was really pleased with Conch Charter. His day by day itinerary provides concise, detailed information like mooring recommendations, snorkeling , on-land touring, and, of course, fun beach parties for each day of the trip. With stops at Norman Island, Cooper Island, Leverick Bay, the Baths, Jost Van Dyke, Trellis Bay, Soper’s Hole, and Spanish Town, he covers a great first time itinerary to the BVIs and gives a good sense of what to expect in the early off-season.
Wrapping up his report with a list of tips, this is one of the better trip reports I read and gives a first timer great insight into the BVI charter bareboat sailing experience.

Norman Island, home of Pirates Bight Bar, Restaurant, and Gift Shop, is perhaps most famous for being the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Treasure Island. However, Norman Island also has a rich documented history of acting as a hiding spot for Pirate booty.Documented history for the island dates back to the early 18th century when a Spanish galleon called Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe buried 55 chests of silver coins after the crew mutinied aboard the ship.
