Barefoot Yacht Charters has a short video about the company and sailing in the Grenadines.

Many readers wrote to us after our story appeared several years ago about our sail from St. Vincent to Granada in the Grenadines.

So we thought that our readers who charter in the Caribbean would want to know that the folks we chartered from, Barefoot Yacht Charters, has added the British Virgin Islands to their sailing grounds.

"At the time of our last charter from them, we wrote, "After half a dozen charters, we all felt that Barefoot (Yacht Charters) surpassed our previous experiences.

"The yacht performed flawlessly and the host's suggestions helped make our 2 weeks sailing from St. Vincent to Granada and back a more memorable sail than we could have  otherwise hoped. We hope Mary at Barefoot knows the enormous esteem with which she's held throughout the islands - everyone knows and likes Mary at Barefoot".

The difference

The important difference to know about these two equally wonderful sailing ground is that the Grenadines will guarantee you a steady 35 knot wind every day and makes for brisk sailing whereas the British Virgins are a group of friendly islands which form a lake within the Caribbean called the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the winds are steady but light enough for relaxed sailing.
