If you are planning to fish in the , don't forget to get a license!

Are you planning a bareboat in the British Virgin Islands this winter or spring?

If you are, you are probably contemplating packing a small rod and reel in your duffle bag.  After all, catching your own dinner is one of the true delights of a sail bareboat adventure.

Before you pack your fishing gear, take note – if caught fishing without a in the British Virgin Islands, you will be subject to heavy fines, and your fishing equipment (and the sail yacht bareboat you have rented) may be confiscated by authorities.

It is this simple:  It is a legal requirement that anyone dropping a hook and line in the waters MUST have a fishing license.

Each person fishing must have a recreational fishing license, except persons age 18 and under.

For a $10 fee, Last Stop Sports (LSS) in Tortola, BVI can process the license application for yacht charter customers and their guests before arrival. Clients must send all required documents to LSS at least one week in advance.

For last minute bookings, starting on a weekend, the deadline is Thursday at 9a.m.

The license is valid for 1 month and costs $45.

A photocopy of a valid photo ID must accompany the application.

It is not necessary to rent fishing gear from LSS – they can still process the licensing request, and they will have the licenses available for pickup upon arrival at the yacht fleet base in the British Virgin Islands.

Licenses can also be obtained directly from the Department of Conservation and Fisheries Administration building in Road Town, Tortola, BVI. The government office closes early on Friday afternoons and doesn’t reopen until Monday morning.  It is closed weekend and public holidays. Call the at 284 494-3429 for more information.

Jeanneau 32i

At sea on a holiday, bareboat sailors can savor the simplest pleasures of coastal cruising, whether as a keel boat or lifting keel with twin rudders. At anchor, 2 couples can easily stretch out in the generous cockpit of the Sun Odyssey 32i. On the interior, refined details in the cabins, head compartments, saloon, galley, and even the card table enhance barefoot charter comfort onboard.

Jeanneau has turbocharged their 32 foot model. This has been achieved by adding a taller rig, a deeper keel, and some racing hardware. The interior, a surprisingly spacious two cabin layout, remains untouched. The new sail charter 32 is equipped with the best hardware and a voluminous interior making the perfect balance between the fast designed hull and the exceptional comfort of this two couple yacht.

This yacht will suit any level of sailor, making it a fine choice for the simple point of sight sailing found on a or the more challenging legs encountered on a adventure.
