Mark Gervelis, June 2009Overview - Give us a snapshot of your time with The Moorings?
The first sail was to Norman Island, got a Mooring, then cooked on board. We snorkled right off back of the 49 foot Living in Fiction. Spent rest of week island hopping. Often went ashore for dinner. The dingy motor always started on the first pull !
Other charters we met were very friendly.Highlights - What were the most memorable experiences of your vacation and where on your itinerary did they happen?
We enjoyed snorkeling at every island .The BVI gov't has put tie-up locations for dingys near good snorkeling. Spent a night tied up at dock at the bitter end yacht club, very interesting place with a great restaurant.Tips - Do you have any advice for fellow Moorings guests visiting this destination?
Think about your food selection when you select the provisioning plan. Most islands have a restaurant, often right near the beach and most are good.Yachts - What features of your yacht did you like the best?
The 40 foot boat sailed easily, was designed for cruising. The bimini realy helped keep the sun off us. We liked the swim ladder it allowed us to snorkel right off the stern on many occasions.Is there anything else you would like to share?
We had a great time . My had just graduated from high school and realy enjoyed the trip as family time before starting college. We saw many familys with 5-10 year old children on board.
