British Virgin Islands "Voyage" video

British Virgin Islands "Voyage" videoSet sail in the British Virgin Islands. The turquoise sea looks good enough to drink, but we bring provisions for a week anyways - enough to go island-hopping, shipwreck diving, and cave snorkeling. As night falls in a sea of anchor lights, I find myself surrounded by stars above and below. Scenes include Tortola Island, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Sandy Cay, Cooper Island, Trellis Bay, Anegada, the Bitter End Yacht Club, Foxy's Taboo, the Indians, the Baths, snorkeling the caves at Norman Island, and diving the RMS Rhone shipwreck.

We lived on a 40-foot sailboat for a week - with just 3 people aboard, we had our hands full raising sails, hauling scuba tanks, cooking, and cleaning! Of course, we did have our share of problems. On our last night, we ran out of fresh water in the tanks as we realized we only filled one of the two tanks - so we bathed in drinking water and drank soda . . .
