Did you know that this 2017 BVI trip might be the largest gathering of Black Boaters/Yachters in the history of Black boating? We are not talking about the events on the cruise ships, we are talking about private yachts. This event started with one (1) welcome party on July 28, 2017. It has grown to three (3) welcome parties one July 27 and two (2) July 28th.
I remember my first trip in 2008, I was fascinated with the collaboration of that number of Black boaters. We had qualified Black Captains from the United States. I am now amazed at the numbers of both the experienced Black boaters and the new people that want to enjoy the experience of renting a yacht and cruising the British Virgin Islands (BVI).
