Island Hopping

Some call it island hopping but bar hopping is more accurate! Gradually but surely we are sailing to other parts of the BVI, including Jost Van Dyke and Norman Islands. While all of the BVI is a sailors paradise, each bay or cay is often identified by its bars.

For example, on Jost Van Dyke, White Bay is best known for the Soggy Dollar Bar, (home of the Foxys. Yet main street that's a beach or its six square miles of palm trees, steep hills and white-sand beaches.

As for Norman Island, boaters flock to The Bight, a well sheltered bay that is home to two popular drinking establishments, the Pirates Bight and William Thornton, a floating bar often called the Willy T. But what is best about this area is the snorkeling (and diving), especially at "The Caves" and "The Indians”.

By now I should have acquired an extensive t-shirt collection as proof of my bar-hopping-by-boat adventures yet I have refrained, opting to keep the money in my cruising coffers. After all there is much more hopping to be done.
