Yacht Week: British Virgin Islands

tumblr_nj1mqpzUlC1rhmlzko8_1280
If you haven’t heard of it, Yacht week is an exhilarating experience filled with sailing, regattas, entertainment, and much more. You get to enjoy the experience with up to eight of your friends, sailing to new areas every day. Once you reach your destination there are various (wild) shenanigans to partake in.

The company offers a plethora of travel options, including the British Virgin Islands, Italy, Greece, Croatia, Thailand, Turkey, and Ultra Europe.

Whichever charter you choose, gorgeous waters, fresh winds, and crazy top tier parties await you.

The British Virgin Island’s feature the perfect combination of style bars, lovely beaches, and fantastic company (the journey consists of around twenty yachts). You must be 20 years or older to attend (the legal age to drink alcohol in BVI is 18).

Destinations

The British Virgin Islands Yacht Week visits Tortola, Peter Island, Jost Van Dyke, Marina Cay, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, and Norman Island. We’ve attached a map below along with a description of each destination.

Yacht Week British Virgin Islands

Tortola

Your airplane lands, the doors open, and you’re greeted with tropical fresh air: Paradise. You’ll have until 6 pm, when your yacht becomes available,  to explore the city. Once they do, you’re off to road town for a late night dinner party!

Peter Island

Famous for their world class beaches, this fantastic snorckeling spot is a must. The experience includes a luxury spa and dinner! Your supper will be comprised of the best Caribbean food and you will be immersed in tranquility.

Jost Van Dyke

Jost Van Dyke is considered one of the top party spots in the world! Packed with fantastic bars, clubs, and wild parties; JVD’s collision with Yacht Week is going to be one hell of a night!

Some shots just need to be shared before the Aftermovie is released next week… #nothingliketherealworld

Marina Cay

After the wild night you’ll head on over to Sandy Spit for a swim. After which, you’ll departure for Marina Cay: a tiny island with a nice restaurant and bar. Due to the fact that the island is so small, it has spectacular snorkeling. 

The contrast between wild and beautiful is just the right combination.

Anegada

Now that you’ve got your feet wet (literally), and you’re starting to get the hang of Yacht Week, you’ll head on over to Anegada. Anegada is the second largest British Virgin Island and was recently given the title of one of the best beaches in the whole Caribbean by New York Times. Here, Yacht week organizes what is claimed to be “the best sunset beach party of your life”.

Truly special.

Virgin Gorda

On to Virgin Gorda! Once there, you’ll be having dinner at the Bitter End Yacht Club: An exclusive resort where rooms run at around $1,000 dollars a night. Following the dinner will be late night drinks and music in the Bitter End Bar. Relax, snorkel, and really enjoy yourself!

P.s. Water sports are a must

Norman Island

The final morning will watch you sail towards “Treasure Island”, an old hangout for pirates. The atmosphere/ snorkeling conditions are said to be stunning. After a delicious dinner at the Pirate’s Bight restaurant (on the beach I might add), you’ll close out Yacht Week on a 30m schooner that is legendary for hosting some of the best parties around.
