Sorry, but what, and where is BVI. What's with these abbreviations? How hard it it to type 3 words? Just a polite reminder that this is an international forum. Just sayin'...
But yes, looks like a lovely place - which is all the more reason why I (and I imagine many others), will want to know where it is.

you were there in the off season, hurricane season....few tourists, few boats....
for the 7 months in season the entire Virgins are a zoo...too many boats, mostly charter, too many people, tourists...about impossible to anchor anywhere......

I thought BVI was a world-wide known abbreviation?

We going every super in august nobody that wonderful, I really don't wan to go during winter like you tell too many people.

But really even if during winter this is full nature is preserved the seabed are wonderful.

I'm going since 20 years even on land not to much change, not crazy construction still very nice.

I get what you are getting at, and it isn't always because of differences of language and nation. BVI is also Cisco routing terminology. and according to a quick google search- is a helicopter blade velocity index.

But, to the OP. Pretty vessel, nice locale, and excellent photos of both. I can see myself being there someday

I agree with Big Thaw, it can be a zoo particular Dec-End Feb. I've based my boat there the last 3 years. But I go down April-May Incl and Oct-Dec incl, then it's not so bad enough people and boats to keep shore side activities busy and fun with no racing for moorings at the end of the day. I'd hazard a guess the islands are running at 20% -25% of capacity. The waters are clean and blue, the people are warm, helpful and hospitable.

We've been there the last two years in February and it's been great then. We didn't find the crowds to be too bad.
