Yacht Charter

These islands are a trendy destination for American and European citizens. Also, many tourists enjoy white sandy beaches with superb snorkelling in the coral reefs near Anegada. The BVI is one of the world’s most fabulous sailing destinations. Consequently, chartering a yacht is a trendy way to cruise the less accessible and remote islands and bays.

Since 1972, the BVI has hosted a Spring Sailing Regatta, a seven-day programme of sailing races running through the beautiful islands.

 

British citizens

Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke are the main islands that make up the British Virgin Islands. However, over fifty other smaller islands and cays complete the group. Surprisingly, around fifteen of the islands have no inhabitants. Road Town, on the island of Tortola, is the capital of the island chain. Tortola island is only 20 kilometres long and 5 kilometres wide.

In 2010, the islands had about 28,000, with most people living on Tortola island. Since 2002, the citizens can also claim to be British. The territory is not part of the EU and therefore not subject to EU law. However, British Virgin Islanders are currently citizens of the EU with travel rights because of their British citizenship.

Climate

The weather in British Virgin Island is warm and sunny most of the year.  However, like all islands in this latitude, they can be affected by hurricane season around September and October.  Hurricane Irma caused severe damage to some of the islands in 2017.  The worst damaged was Tortola.
