We will be provisioning before we get underway on November 3 from BVI Yacht Charters in Roadtown. On past trips we found it convenient to do a less extensive re-provisioning at the store in Leverick Bay. I thought I read somewhere that you are not able to just walk into a local store due to Covid. True? If so any suggestions on how to re-provision?

Not true. You just need to wear a mask and sanitize your hands as you enter. Some stores also require a temperature check.

We did some provisioning at Leverick in May. They were very well stocked. We will be down again next week and plan on stopping there again. I will try to give you an up to date report after our visit there.

We will be chartering for 10 days over the Christmas holidays. This will be our first time. Do you find the provisions less expensive on the smaller islands?

Exactly the opposite.

Virtually everything used or consumed in the BVI is shipped to Tortola, where it goes through Customs and duty is assessed. From there it is barged (or flown) to the outer islands. So everything (except maybe booze) is more expensive than the US mainland, or even the USVI. Away from Tortola it is even more expensive. Some produce is grown locally. It is probably fresher, but not cheaper.

By a significant margin!

At Leverick today. Provisioning store is well stocked with the exception of the meat freezer.
