Renting a boat in British Virgin Islands

Where fresh seafood and Creole-influenced cuisine is concerned, no Caribbean country does it better than the British Virgin Islands. Fungi (say it FOON-gee) is made with thick cornmeal and okra and is practically the national dish of the BVI. Order curried veggies, shredded meat wrapped in delicate pastry and callaloo soup at any five-star restaurant in the British Virgin Islands and don't forget to try tamarind-scented fruit stew for dessert. Most years begin with gusty winds that can blow up to 30 knots for days on end. In February, the winds move eastward. Around June, prevailing winds start to blow in a southeasterly direction and slow to around 10 to 15 knots. Trade winds are weak and weather is unpredictable in September and October. November in the BVI sees more stable weather patterns and gentler breezes. Expect relaxed seas of three to four feet and minimal tidal action when you rent a sailboat in the BVI.
