British Virgin Islands
Our world is full of destinations to be explored by car, others by bike and some others are only available to admire by sailing the seas. That is the case with the British Virgin Islands – a destination that can only be explored sailing. Thus, to multiply the charm of our adventures on a special time of the year, we decided to escape to the BVI’s to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Some of us were about to meet for the first time, and several others couldn’t resist getting that special experience they have already had during our previous adventures.
So, for seven days long our crew sailed Caribbean Soul II – a brand-new monohull, to the secluded and sometimes inhabited islands and cays which compose the BVI’s. This area is famous for its perfect sailing conditions and the precipitation during this season is at its minimum, so all of the listed together made this trip unforgettable!
We started the journey aboard our 51Ft sailboat early in the morning and headed to Norman Island. There we spent the rest of the day exploring the island and its different tropical fish and coral reefs. I must confess I have never seen anything like that before! The amount of sea creatures of all colors and at a short dive reach blew my mind! The picture down the water was so incredible that sometimes I had to remind myself it all was a Nature’s realm and not a Disneyland.
