If balmy days, beach bars and power naps in hammocks are what you’re after; our Caribbean route set in the British Virgin Islands is perfect for you. After a few Painkiller cocktails and calypso songs in a beach shack, the evenings get turned up a notch.
I'll never forget what I felt in this moment, the freedom from life, the joy of life, and the friendships I made for life on this trip! Thank you The Yacht Week
This is an example route. A detailed itinerary of your week will be released 2 weeks before the event.
Tortola, the capital island of the BVI, is the perfect balance between laid back island life and the summer season buzz. It is here that you will take your first step into paradise and have a taster of the white-sugary beaches that lay beneath the palm trees. Once you're settled into your yacht, we will jump into taxis and head to Trellis Bay to celebrate the epic week to come at The Last Resort.
This petite, bonsai sized island makes up in personality what it lacks in size. The charismatic island legend, Foxy, opened his own tiki bar in the same name which has earned a reputation among the top party destinations in the world. After sailing for a short while to Little Harbour you'll watch the fishermen catch the lobster which will then be prepared in true Caribbean style for dinner, order a drink from TYW Skippers who double as bartenders to get you ready for a very festive party at Sidney's Peace & Love Restaurant.
Arrive early to make the most of the gorgeous Spanish Town. Home to the Baths, a stunning rock formation created by volcanic eruptions, enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches with the bluest waters in the archipelago and let the views from Hog Heaven Restaurant take your breath away.
After a few hours of sailing, Anegada appears as a mirage on the water. The New York Times announced it as one of the best beaches in the whole of the Caribbean. It’s a pity those journalists haven't yet graced us with their presence, because with a lobster BBQ, fresh Carib beers and live calypso on the shore, it might just be the best beach in the world. But we'll let you be the judge of that.
Asking Morgan Freeman to put sunscreen on your back would probably never happen, but seeing him on the beach is quite probable. If you didn't quite get the memo, North Sound, Virgin Gorda is home to some big movie stars whose neighbors are billionaires living on their own surrounding islands, with the likes of Necker Island which is privately owned by none other than Sir Richard Branson.
This tropical hunk of land inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write ‘Treasure Island’. A coastline adorned with caves tucked behind rocky outcrops and natural pools which teem with an aquarium of coral fish. For evening time tomfoolery, head to the island’s floating bar on a 30 meter schooner known as Willy T.
Sandy Cay is a small island where you'd want to burry your feet in the white washed sand beach and stay there forever. It’s also a great place to set anchor for a spontaneous afternoon party on the beach.
This tiny little sustainable island is home to The Last Resort restaurant where you'll be able to enjoy a truly Caribbean dinner and kick the week off in true TYW style.
As a standard stop when sailing to The Baths at Virgin Gorda or back to the home marina, Cooper Island is a great place for an afternoon chill out session at the beach club. The beach bar offers stunning sunset views and in order to kickstart the evening the right way, Happy Hour is from 4-6pm.
Ever seen those documentaries about Richard Branson’s private island in the BVIs? Well we just happen to be sailing by and know the perfect place to drop anchor. Head to the gorgeous sand bank, Little Necker - with a view of Necker Island - and chill out under the palm trees, swim in the turquoise water and refuel with an impromptu yoga session.

Yes, we read your mind…
The exact routes are set a few weeks before the event starts. As soon as the routes are set, you will be able to view it on your booking.
All yachts in the BVI will depart from Hodges Creek Marina. It is located just outside Road Town.
We recommend to get to the marina at 3pm. Then you will have time to register with us, do the check-in with the yachting company and the food shopping before you get your yacht. The yachts will stay in the marina on the first night and set sail on Sunday morning. You will get back to the marina on Saturday morning and have to check out and leave the yacht by 11am, so don't book any flights until Saturday evening. Note that some events may start and end on a different day (like New Year and w.1), so please check the details of your trip carefully.
