Welcome to the BVI
At The Yacht Week we are always seeking the endless summer so we are taking you on one of the world’s greatest holiday experiences – sailing around the British Virgin Islands for New Year and Spring sailing in the Caribbean’s most stunning retreat.
We take care of the boat and provide the captain (if you need one). All you need to do is gather your friends, book a yacht and prepare for an unforgettable experience.
Event Dates 2015
People travel from all over the world to celebrate “Old Year’s Night” - as the local people call it.

As the airplane door opens you feel the ocean breeze, sense the warmth of the tropical sun and see the palm trees and suddenly realise that you have stepped out into paradise. Take a taxi to the marina in Road Town (Wickham’s Cay). We will greet you upon arriving at the marina. The yachts will be available from 6pm. Until then we suggest that you explore the beaches, restaurants,
shops and the slow rhythm of life in the West Indies. If you don’t like shopping an order can be placed directly with the supplier and delivered to your yacht. Otherwise it’s a good idea to go food shopping while you are waiting for the yacht. In the evening, we will arrange a welcome dinner party in Road Town!
Sail to the southwest of Virgin Gorda to visit the Baths - the unusual rock formations that have created a famous snorkeling area and beach. This stop is a must, especially if you make it all the way into Devil’s Bay. In the afternoon we sail towards Peter Island which is a charming place. Take the time to enjoy a walk around the island or perhaps indulge yourself in the luxury spa! In the evening the tables are set for dinner and drinks comprising of the best of the Caribbean surrounded by palm trees listening to the waves breaking over the beach.
Jost Van Dyke
Enjoy a day of beautiful sailing towards Jost van Dyke and White Bay. This is the home of three excellent bars:
Soggy Dollar Bar – home of the Painkiller, a drink known the world over.
Ivan’s Stress Free Bar – speaks for itself!
Gertrudes – simply charming. Grab a beer in the bar and sit down right on the beach.
In the afternoon we move to Great Harbour, home to Foxy’s Bar, and moor for the night. Foxy’s offer live Caribbean music and wild parties. You just know we will take over the bar! For New Year’s festivities people travel from all over the world to celebrate “Old Year’s Night” - as the local people call it. This night is amazing and ranked among the top party destinations in the world. Imagine celebrating New Year’s in your flip flops under starry skies with live reggae music all night long.
