This is my first charter to the BVI, and I know most everything is line of sight and there will be a chart plotter/GPS onboard but I still like having a paper chart as a back up. I assume I should bring my own or will Moorings normally have a set on board? Anyone know the relevant chart numbers? thanx
Jorgen said: They have the Imray-lolaire A233,which covers both the USVI and the BVI including Anegada.
This is what we bought when we finished sailing school in November. It was about $60 - it's a really nice detailed chart (thick paper, prob waterproof?). It's much more detailed than the chart that TMM sent with the guidebook. We also have Frank's map of the BVI's which is great quality and has snorkel/dive spots marked. While the subject is up, should we also have a navigation app if some kind on our iPad? The boat were chartering is a 2013 cat - assume it has a pretty good GPS/charting system?
First time down, '79, bought several charts for our "planning parties" with another couple. During check out the guy used a chart in a laminated placemat and THAT is all we needed - then and now. But do agree about the fun of planning ahead of time - however, don't expect to actually follow whatever you planned <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Groovin.gif" alt="" />
