In January of this year I went to St Thomas for my brothers wedding. We had a great time and the wedding was wonderful. For the honeymoon my brother and his new bride rented a sailboat and drove around the Caribbean for two weeks.
A couple months ago my brother asked if I’d like to do a sailboat trip with him and his wife.
I got an email today. He has a 2007 39’ Bavaria cruiser rented. My girlfriend and I are going to go so it will be 6 people, my brother and his wife and one other couple.
I am way excited. A week driving around the islands. My brother has a captain licence so there is no crew. Just us. My girlfriend is quite happy about the trip. I am gonna score massive boyfriend points for this one
It is also suprizingly affordable. It is ~ 1800 per person* including air, food and gas. Not a bad price to drive around paradise in your own boat for a week.
I am giddy as a schoolgirl. This is gonna rock.
*That is no where near what I thought one of those trips would cost. That estimate is on the hgih end. It is more, by a reasonable amount, than what I would normally want to spend on a vacation but…it is driving around the Virgin Islands in a sailboat.
