BVI Bound

Sailing in the British Virgin Islands

Virgin Anchorages

I love this book: Virgin Anchorages. I’d highly recommend it to anyone going sailing in the Virgin Islands.

I used to take all my sailing books with me. Just in case I needed to check something. Or in case I needed to figure out how to explain something to one of my crew. And I never open them.

Virgin Anchorages on the other hand is one of the books you might consult several times a day.

It has beautiful pictures of all the bays and harbours with arrows and x’es showing how you should enter and what you should avoid. Definitely a must have. Much easier than reading a text description of how to enter a bay.

Here’s an example of just one of the many, many pictures they have.
