Let’s share a story first –
The James couple was planning to celebrate their 35th marriage anniversary in a unique and intimate manner. Sailing the US Virgin Islands with their immediate family members was their plan. These islands comprising three primary domains – St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix are known for their turquoise blue waters, endless powdery beaches, and tranquil atmosphere, (November through April are the best chartering months) in the Caribbean!
Sounds interesting, does it not? Well, this summer, you too can sail with those westerlies in a crewed motor yacht and enjoy the water lapping up on your yacht as you anchor it in the US Virgin Islands!
The islands to visit –
If you are sailing in the US Virgin Islands, then start from the main US island of St. Thomas. With the capital city of Charlotte Amalie, this town is known for its fine dining and impeccable fashion range. Pick up a souvenir for memory.
Next, sail east to the island of St. John which has the very famous Virgin Islands National Park along with 22 self-trekking courses and plenty of beaches. As you sail from St. Thomas, don’t forget to check out the beauty of Christmas cove, Thatch Bay, Lolik Islands, and Red Hook. (Magen’s Bay provides a place to anchor for the night).
Now, with the crewed motor yacht that you received from sailing in the US Virgin Islands, follow the trade winds and reach out to St. Croix. Once you reach and spend some time on the pristine beaches of St. Croix, sail around East End and set up a mooring at Salt Pond Bay. As you take a round trip, a stop at the bustling Cruz Bay is a must!
