BVI sailing conditions and BVI weather offer consistent and ideal conditions for learn to sail and yacht charters. Trade winds are usually consistent throughout the year, blowing from 10 to 20 knots. Furthermore, the wind blows almost constantly from the East. Thanks to this, the BVI weather conditions make for simpler itinerary planning and scheduling.
There are plenty of BVI weather websites which provide useful information for planning your yacht charter, including Weather Underground and WindGuru. Weather Underground provides detailed weather forecasts; Windguru is designed for sailors and provides BVI weather information of specific relevance to sailing. Sea states, wind and current directions and wind speed (with gusts) are all provided. These are especially useful if you prefer to set-up your charter yacht each morning before getting underway. For example you may choose to reef the main sail prior to departure if wind speeds are forecast to be in reefing range. It’s much easier to do it on your mooring than underway!
You will receive a comprehensive chart briefing on arrival at Horizon Yacht Charters BVI Base. We do recommend that you keep an eye on the weather both when underway and at each of your chosen anchorages during your BVI Yacht Charter. If you have chosen to learn to sail with us, maintaining a weather watch will be emphasised as part of your BVI sailing school tuition.
Join us for BVI Yacht Charters or Learn to Sail vacations – BVI weather and BVI sailing conditions are ideal for both!
