Sailing Conditions

Constant warm tradewinds at 10-20 knots provide excellent sailing. BVI is popular all year round with temperatures staying a balmy 30oC. but the best time to come is November to June. In summer winds tend to be lighter with greater humidity, but there’s still plenty of sunshine. There is a risk of tropical storms mainly during August and September.

There are very few marinas in the BVIs so most nights you are on anchor in a bay with a classic Caribbean white sand and palm tree beach. In many places there are laid buoys which cost US$30/night but give you a safe mooring within minutes of sailing into the bay.

We have rated this destination a 'Level 1' (levels info).
