The Yacht Week

Caribbean, BVI Route

Sailing in the tropics

Whether it's a New Year bash or Spring sailing you're looking for, this tropical route is ideal for sailors that want to kick off their shoes, help the community get back on their feet and give island life a go. Sail the tropics, search for hawksbill turtles, listen to the local's stories and swim to sunken ships off the shores of sprawling white-sand beaches.

Read our How it Works page to help you and your crew plan the trip of a lifetime and find out everything you need to know.

Getting there

We set sail from Hodges Creek marina. Tortola Airport (EIS) is a 20 minute taxi journey away. Find out more about getting to Hodges Creek marina here.


What will the itinerary look like in the Caribbean?
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.
What marinas will the yachts depart from in the Caribbean?
All yachts in the British Virgin Islands will depart from Hodges Creek Marina. It is located just outside Road Town.
When do I have to arrive on the first date and when does the yacht return back on the last day?
We recommend getting to the marina by 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 9am (please note that you might not receive your cash deposit until 11am), so don't book any flights until late Saturday afternoon or evening.
