What are the US Virgin Islands like?
The beautiful islands of the US Virgin Islands are a territory of the United States. There are three main islands called St. Thomas St. John and St. Croix. They are in the Caribbean at Latitude 18. The weather is perfect with tropical conditions of between 80°F and 85°F, Wind blowing at approximately 15 to 20 knots out of the east E year-round, and typically 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. The inviting crystal clear Caribbean turquoise waters are about 82°F year-round.
This area has been intertwined with Sailing since the arrival of Columbus in 1493, on his second voyage to the New World. He first landed on St. Croix, an island with a freshwater source. The area islands were born with piracy with European and Spanish settlements become a treacherous place to be. By 1917, the Danes were happy to sell their Virgin Islands to the United States who were eager to have a military outpost for $25 million.
Sailing charter industry has been the backbone of the economy of all three sections of the Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, and Spanish Virgin Islands for the last 100 years. We are fulling a need to share our knowledge and experience to help sailors prepare and get acquainted to bareboat charter any where in the world. We show you around all the anchorages and secluded bays of the VI while getting experience.
Life after hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2018 and COVID-19 have had an impact on the main sailing industry. The local government of the US Virgin Islands is taking the industry seriously and have been addressing ways to help. They are in complete support of the marine industry and recognize the benefits to the island. Their mission is to keep things open, safe, and take extreme caution to protect the natural environment as tourism increases. There are a few COVID 19 protocols to follow but easy and effective.
