Hi, it’s obvious some of the responders here don’t know or they would have said something.
Don’t let it hamper your vacation because there’s plenty of beautiful places to visit.

Yes...exactly....responses have nothing at all to do with the fact that there’s a sticky post at the top of this forum listing everything that is open....lol....

North Sound - BEYC closed, Saba closed, Leverick Bay very much open (just left there Tuesday)
Willie T - original boat still beached, new one supposedly on the way - arrival time and opening date still TBD
Trellis Bay - still a bit of a mess but places are open....

I still recommend checking the sticky post on what’s open...but there are the answers to your specific needs....

Actually we're simply suggesting to read the various threads by topic of interest without someone having to repost the significant amount of detailed info already posted and available.

Its obvious this board was created to help others, as there is a wealth of information on here. It has certainly become my daily read. But on occasion a question will be repeated or a post made without too much thought. It happens. I have absolutely done it. Instead of shaming the poster or making a snide remark remember what our mom's taught us years ago. "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all." Just sayin"...... (Insert Rodney King quote)

No one "shamed" the OP suggested a better way to glean info.

Hello all: Things are changing so rapidly that for the time being we might just answer the questions being asked.

Take the Willie T for example. If all goes according to schedule the Willie T will be up and running any day now. As far as I know, right now, Thursday, May 11, it is NOT up and running. On the other hand, at Marina Cay they are talking about possible adding an evening meal to their menu. These are important details for those who are already on the water, who may not have reliable access to wifi etc. and who are trying to plan the week's itinerary for a boatload of people.

If someone is bringing a large group to the BVI, I can understand the mountain of details they are dealing with just to keep everyone on track. It does take time to go back and check all of the previous threads. Things are NOT back to normal in the BVI, so perhaps we should be willing to cut everyone some slack for the time being.

We will be there in late May, and we are looking forward to fair winds, clear waters, and spending our children's inheritance!

I just read this morning that the Willy T is officially on it's way with an expected arrival date of May 13-15th.

The only place opened in North Sound is Leverick Bay, and man does it look good. The Upstairs Restaurant is open, pool, docks, Jumbies bar, shops, grocery, and the Cove restaurant downstairs.

We didn't stop in Trellis, but the the grocery store is open, they also are severing food. I don't think anything else in Trellis is open.

Hope this helps.

I certainly appreciate all the updates. We'll be down on May 16 for 10 days on a Sunsail 38. Still trying to plan our itinerary. We head out Friday May 18. Is North Sound too much for the first day out? We're coming in on Wednesday, so we should be ready to head out after our Friday morning boat checkout with Sunsail. Maybe Marina Cay would be better? I would like to head to Anegada on day 2 for a couple nights, then back to North Sound.

North Sound would be a long first day - go to Cooper and then up to North Sound from there - Cooper Island Beach Club is open!

If you are sleeping aboard on Thursday it’s doable to head to the N sound. If not it’s a long day. Better to stay local.

Big Sexy just posted on FB 6 hours ago that the new Willy T had arrived in the territory. You can't get that news from "the sticky". You old farts need to lighten up and be nice. "insert grin emoji"
