To impart the love of sailing and the thrill of skimming across sparkling aqua waters in a tropical paradise is a magnificent gift to share with every member of your family. Some sports are best learned in childhood – swimming, sailing, skating skiing….. here is one of the world’s best places to introduce your family to the glories of watersports.   At the Bitter End Yacht Club (Resort & Spa) tucked in the north sound of the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, families have been coming to learn to sail and enjoy every type of water sport imaginable for more than 30 years.  Family vacations packages have been crafted to ensure kids are busy, learning and active, while parents are relaxing, learning and pampered – and yes, everyone is having fun.  This year may be the best time to visit the Bitter End Yacht Club yet, as prices have been reduced by 33% for summer and fall vacations, representing savings of up to $3,500 for a family of four!

In addition to a long tradition of boating, the crystal clear waters of the BVI offer prime opportunities for diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, hobie sailing, fishing, swimming, and well, just about any activity that can be done on or along the water.  The Bitter End Yacht Club is famous for it’s fleet of Boston Whalers, daysailers and dingies available for guests’ unlimited use.  The resort offers three meals a day, walking trails, fresh water pool, and lots of activity programs all week long.  And if all the fun has you pooped, stop into the spa for a relaxing massage and treatment.

The resort also appeals to all you ‘king of the hill’ personalities as well , as the staff organizes boating Regattas twice a week on Sunday and Wednesday.  Or perhaps you’d love to sail in a race with a world-class sailor; an America’s Cup skipper, or an Olympic Medalist?  You’ll want to visit during Pro Am Regatta week at the end of October, when resort guests are matched up with sailors of world renown for a week of friendly competition, cocktail parties, dining events and a whole lot of good natured rivalry.
