The San Juan Islands trip was a great success! Weather was perfect, we got in some great sailing and visited some of the most beautiful anchorages you can imagine. I've included a couple of my photos - I'll try to gather more from the rest of the travelers and add to next week's email.
British Virgin Islands!!! January 24 to February 2, 2019 - we have 5 catamarans reserved (two are full!) and we are ready to go! The details are below, the price is for two people. This is a great beginner trip but also has the challenges the regulars will love. If you've never been there, you need to go! If you have been there, you know what we are talking about!
Sailing at home this year has been extra-windy with lots of challenges! Be safe out there on the bay, plan ahead!

British Virgin Islands, January 24 - February 2, 2019
Stretching throughout the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands are a kaleidoscope of aquamarine waters, sun-soaked harbors, and white-sand beaches. Distinct ports of call can be found among the more than 25 pristine islands that make up the BVI. Throw away the to-do list and leave your day to chance, where you can search for turtles off the shores and find yourself gazing across the sea from a hilltop bar. Fill all your senses with spectacular scenery, delectable cuisine, and soft-sand beaches. The coral atoll of Anegada is the resting point of many a sunken ship and offers amazing underwater views for diving. From sprawling beaches to small villages you’re sure find your own reason to cruise back on another return voyage.
