LP Sailboat Rental in the British Virgin Islands

The BVI is a British overseas territory located in the Caribbean and is considered by most to be a prime yachting location on account of its reef lined beaches. This island group consists of around 60 islands in total - four main ones and many different smaller ones. Its capital, Road Town, is located on the largest island Tortola along with Sage National Park and the Baths on Virgin Gorda are also well worth a visit. All in all, we believe that you can’t possibly be disappointed with a sailboat rental in this prime boating location and with Océans Évasion, you are bound to find what you’re looking for.

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat in the BVI?

There are many different factors that can affect the cost of renting a sailboat in the BVI. A few of these factors include the number of people going on the trip, the season, whether or not you want to rent with a skipper, the size and model of the boat, and the duration of your trip. In general though, you should expect to spend about €1285 per week when renting a sailboat in the BVI.

Do you need to rent a sailboat with a skipper in the BVI?

No, in the British Virgin Islands it is possible to find sailboat rentals either with or without a skipper. However, if you’re planning on renting a sailboat without a skipper, you will need to obtain the appropriate licence by taking a Safe Boating Course before embarking on your nautical adventure.

Renting a sailboat without a skipper is perfect for those with a little bit more nautical experience, who want to explore the BVI at their leisure, going wherever they please. If the main aim of your holiday is to relax, however, you should rent with a skipper and let them take you to all the best spots while imparting knowledge only a local would know.

What are the weather and sailing conditions like in the British Virgin Islands?

In general, the climate in the BVI is hot and windy with frequent partial cloud cover. The air temperature ranges throughout the year from around 23.33°C from January until March, to about 31.67°C in August. The water temperature reaches its peak in September, when it is about 28.89°C, but drops down to about 26.11°C in February.

The BVI’s rainiest month is September, which usually sees around 7.11 cm of precipitation, and the driest month is March, when there is typically around 0.76 cm of rain. The windiest month in the BVI falls in July, when the average wind speeds are around 25.75 kmph, but this drops down to around 19.63 kmph by around October.

When is the best time to go sailing in the BVI?

In general, it is a good idea to go to the BVI from September until November, just before the hordes of tourists rush to the Caribbean to escape the cold temperatures of winter in other places. The lower number of tourists leads to lower boat prices and also less crowded beaches, which is ideal for boating holidays. However, if you do plan on sailing during this period, you should keep a close eye on the weather forecast, as it coincides with the end of hurricane season which runs from June until November.

If you plan on diving during your sailing vacation in the BVI, you should aim to go during the winter or spring as summer diving expeditions are often ruined by poor visibility. Another good time for sailors to visit these idyllic islands is March, when it is possible to enjoy the BVI Spring Regatta.
