After several canceled flotillas over the last 15 months, we are excited to announced the rebooking of the club’s annual flotilla! We’re heading to the BVI’s this fall for eight amazing days of sailing.
Each year the club picks a tropical sailing destination and organizes a week-long charter with our affiliate, The Moorings. The Moorings was established in 1969 (the same as Harbor Sailboats) and holds charter bases around the world offering week charters aboard Beneteau’s and Leopard Catamarans. The British Virgins Islands is our favorite location for many reasons but the ease of travel, US dollar currency, predictable trade winds, and warm water are among the top reasons.
The club has selected September 29th – October 8th as our charter dates and has begun taking reservation.
How Does it Work?
The Harbor Sailboats lead boat sets a loose itinerary for the week that you can follow or venture out on your own, it’s totally up to you. Our lead boat will also organize social happy hours, group dinners, and be on the water to help you along the way. If you’ve never done a week-long bareboat charter, this is an amazing way to do so!
Members will book their boat through Harbor Sailboats as we make suggestions on boat size and type based on your experience and crew size. From there, you can fill your boat with friends and family to split the cost. Next, book your air travel with your favorite carrier and let us plan the rest!
We will board our boats at 3pm on September 29th and complete out check outs with the dock master. From there, you can head to the grocery store to provision with food for the week and be ready to set off the next morning to our first anchorage. Our float plan will take us to a different island almost every day with a two day stop at some of the larger and more active islands. Daily fun will include sailing, swimming, snorkeling, and of course relaxing. On the 8th day we drop our boats off prior to 11am where some will catch a flight home while others will stay for another day or two to keep it going!
Charters for a 38′ monohull start at $4,600 with options up to 50′ including catamarans. Give the office a call for more details or to review a quote.
We are looking forward to this adventure
