Sail in the British Virgin Islands

With warm weather throughout the year, steady trade winds, calm currents and a kaleidoscope of aquamarine waters and bougainvillea-clad hillsides, Tortola is a sailor's paradise. This is the yacht charter capital of the Caribbean and arguably the most famous sailing destination in the world. Here you’ll find sheltered, yacht-filled harbors, sun-soaked white-sand beaches, delightful pirate bars and awe-inspiring dives.

"It will be warm. It will be epic. It will be challenging. It will require mental toughness, and it will be, as professional sailor Scott Dickson, once proclaimed at our awards ceremony atop the legendary Willy T’s, 'The most fun I’ve ever had at a regatta.' And he had his clothes on."
