bareboat sailing charters in the caribbean

does anyone do this? I am a novice sailor and think this would be cool to do in the Virgin Islands (british)

it looks like it is pretty cheap

could be an OBGT

My family member and his SO are with 5 other couples. Has to be a big boat. They are flying back today after a week down there. Don't know as for as renting. If I talk to them, I will get the info for you.

Not much.

Generally they will stay on your boat say 1-2 days to teach.

They then get off boat and it be all to you !!

I know of a couple of them that will do a check ride with you the afternoon you get there and as long as you convince them you aren't stupid and fill out a sailing 'resume', you're in.

But if you have no experience, you really don't want to be in a big boat with nobody there that knows what to do if anything goes wrong. Go learn to sail first.

A girl I hung with in college does butt naked sailing. Does that count.
