NauticEd Sailing Vacations


March 2023 | Family-friendly | Hosted by NauticEd

Join NauticEd and fellow sailors on a
family-friendly British Virgin Islands flotilla and sailing vacation.

Known as the sailing vacation capital of the world –for good reason—the British Virgin Islands (BVI) are a picturesque group of islands in the Caribbean that check off all the elements of what makes a perfect Caribbean sailing vacation – ideal tropical weather, consistent winds, stunning islands, line of sight navigation, abundant nature, and as much relaxation or beach party adventure spots as you desire.


Boats will sell out fast to the general market as well as in this flotilla.

Plan on booking the British Virgin Islands flotilla early!

Let us know your group size, catamaran or monohull, and if you require a Captain

What is a Family-Friendly Flotilla?

The 2023 British Virgin Islands Sailing Flotilla is a casual flotilla without a ‘theme.’ This is NOT an adult-only flotilla, a party yacht week, or a flotilla focusing solely on hiking or wines or yoga. We’re laid back and run our flotillas that way. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit. There is a no ducks-in-a-row mentality; a flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and camaraderie with other flotilla sailors.

BVI Flotilla Sample Itinerary

This interactive map is a typical sample itinerary we have put together. More than likely we will do Itinerary #6. The route taken during the week will depend on prevailing and current weather. Tap the top left slider icon to see different routes. Note that Long bay on Night 1 is exposed to a westerly swell – if such conditions exist we will reposition into North Sound.
