The British Virgin Islands, known among yachtsmen as the "Sailing Capital of the World" has continued with its efforts to promote and support yacht charters by sponsoring SAIL Magazine's new Charter Channel, an online series of video segments devoted to educating and inspiring travelers about yacht chartering. The 12 videos in the series are 4-6 minutes and each cover a different charter subject, including choosing your charter boat, provisioning for a week-long charter, how to properly moor a yacht, and all the ins and outs of a yacht charter trip.
SAIL Associate Editor Meredith Laitos hosts the videos, in which she walks viewers through helpful informational topics. Her years of experience as a national college sailing champion and consummate Caribbean charterer are evidenced through the relaxed and credible tone of the videos. The first video in the series, which kicked off the official launch of the channel in November, can be viewed at www.sailmagazine.com/charter.
The British Virgin Islands, a base for a wide array of yacht charter suppliers, serves as the ideal setting for the videos. Beyond practical information about yachts themselves, the Charter Channel videos feature some of the incredible destinations and yacht charter companies that can be found throughout the British Virgin Islands. With easy island-hopping, line-of-sight navigation, steady winds, and a multitude of sheltered anchorages – as well as a plethora of breathtaking natural wonders, award-winning culinary options, world-class spas, and other waterside activities – the BVI is the ultimate destination for charter sailors and water-lovers alike.
