I love the British Virgin Islands. It’s a place that’s just damn good fun. Sure, it is the holidaymakers Caribbean, it can be a bit Americanised, and the sailing is at the milder end of the spectrum with such sheltered waters. But, for a great sailing holiday, with virtually guaranteed wind, you can’t really go wrong. A must visit is the legendary Willy T.
A rust bucket of a boat that has been a bar for as long as anyone can remember, the Willy T is a wonderful old beast that’s seen a few parties. You pick up a mooring buoy, jump in the tender/on the paddle board/swim, and sink a few Willy T sundowners. And then probably quite a few more. It’s a BVI institution.
The drink to have here is unquestionably a Dark and Stormy. Forget to bring money to pay for it? Not a problem, just jump off the back of top deck, naked, and it’s free.
