December 2023: British Virgin Islands ASA Flotilla

Thirty (30) sailors joined this past flotilla in December! We had 2 catamarans, a Bali 4.6 and Bali 4.8, and a Jeanneau Sun Loft 47'. We traveled over 125NM, over 10 days visiting most of the must-see iconic anchorages!

2024 Dates: JAN. 6, 13, 20, 27 & FEB. 3


Please join us for the series every Saturday in January!

During the sail we will participate in the "Icicle Series" sponsored by Galveston Bay Cruising Association. Sharpen your sail trimming skills and gain valuable experience in a causal and stress-free environment.
