We never show up to meet Foxy on Sunday, he takes Sundays off.
We have been sailing the BVI (British Virgin Islands) and US Virgin Islands over 20 years. We founded Caribbean Cruising Club in 1992 as an alternative to the high cost of sailboat charters in the Caribbean.
Join the crew.  Why sit on the sidelines when you can participate.. Sailboat charters for Active people of all ages.. book a Stateroom or the entire yacht..
We take you to the front row of all the events, you will make all the parties with plenty of beach, snorkeling time included.  You become as involved in sailing the boat as much as you wish, and you never have to worry if the anchor is down.  And now with our per/person per cabin offerings.. no need to put a group together.. pick the dates you want and come sailing, let us worry about filling that other Stateroom.  What a great way to make new lifelong friendships.. those that sail together...
