Hi all...

Amid the pandemic, some creative charter companies (it should be announced shortly) have planned to offer virtual charter cruises, probably via Zoom or Webex, or MS team. All we will need is a large monitor (computer of TV) to enjoy al the images of the cruise.
A typical cruise, most probably shorter to avoid boredom, will be like 2 or 3 days, and take guests to the best Caribbean anchorages, as well as offer virtual activities, like kayaking, virtual BBQs, etc.
Needless to say, the cruises will be offered at a tiny fraction of the original price. But I guess the idea for the charter companies is to entertain, build fidelity and procure some evasion in the midst of the crap happening right now...

Sailonline.com will post details within the next 2 days.

Cheers and stay safe everyone!

Michel does a great job coming up with these every year. Let's do our best not to announce the April Fools next year and just see if we get some fools. That is the fun!

I once made a April fools post about a company gaining control of the mooring balls in the BVI and handing them out on a priority basis to their clients. I guess it’s not April fools anymore!
