As a sailing destination, The British Virgin Islands offers easy deep-water island hops, consistent and favourable trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and plentiful sheltered anchorages. With 25 islands and hundreds of hidden bays and coves, no wonder this pretty archipelago is the world’s yachting capital. The base at Wickham’s Cay 11, Tortola, is the best located and equipped on the island.
