This month's best boat name is actually the boat that our customers are never supposed to see... our chase boat
"Conch-orde"  
 It is appropriately named for its speed and is still up and flying!

Happy March from Conch Charters

Happy March and an early Happy Easter to you all. The BVI is host to the annual Spring Regatta starting March 30th through to April 5 where some of the best parties on island will be held and people from all over the world attend.


After all, in the BVI...
The palm trees are swaying
There's reggae in the air
The sun is hot hot hot (and it doesn't snow here)
The warm traders are a blowing
Where are you??!!

The best t-shirt we have seen on docks pretty much sums it all up... 'Schooner or later we will get our ship together!'

 
Our Fleet...

We are very excited to introduce a few new additions that will be joining our fleet later in the year... yes I know, we are only in March and are already talking about our 2016 season... but we are that excited! 

We have two 2010 Beneteau Oceanis 43's joining the fleet with a more traditional finish, a 2008 Beneteau Cyclades 50 owner's version with forward California King cabin and a brand new 2016 model Lipari 41, all making their way to us with a few more in the pipeline.   

We can't wait to welcome them to our docks and get you all out on the water for a sail!



 

Conch's Fab Spot of the Month  


What started out as a teeny tiny dock catering to Biras Creek Resort's guests soon became an ever popular 'hidden gem' catering to all visiting guests to the North Sound, Virgin Gorda. Fat Virgin Cafe is well known for its 'casual waterside dining'. They are open for lunch and dinner daily and offer a Caribbean Fusion menu with flavors for all palates. 

Gourmet Magazine raved about Fat Virgin cafe and are quoted for saying 'what made the dish so extraordinary was Esther's zingy sauce'. If you have a taste for hot sauce, this is the one that you need to sample! Homemade with local 'scotch bonnets', this will definitely wake up those taste buds!

They have a well stocked boutique alongside with plenty of odds and ends to take home to remind you of this great spot. 



      
Conch-coction

"The Conch Fusion"  

  

1 1/4 oz Conch Superior Rum

 (a bottle free with every charter)
 

1 1/4 oz Tequila      

1 1/4 oz Benedictine

1 1/4 oz Fresh Lime

1/4 oz Coconut Cream 


 

Blend together with a cup of ice and pour into a stylish glass. In the BVI we float a little extra rum on top when served - why knot! Invite the crew around, don't forget the fruit garnish!

 
 Testing Question
'Sydney's Peace and Love Bar' is famous for its honour system where you pour yourself a drink and pay your dollars in the jar. It is a great spot with a beautiful setting. 
Where is this bar located?
