Day of sailing

by Martina Jackson
(Tortola, British Virgin Islands)

I got married in 2007 and my son decided to take the family sailing. My husband has a very large family so we had to charter two catamarans for the trip.

My son worked at a charter company at the time so getting the yachts was not a problem.

I took this picture at Jos Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands, where we anchored the yacht. The water was seven feet deep. I am not a great swimmer so I stayed in the boat taking pictures as the kids just jumped in and out of the water.

This one is of my niece and nephew-in-law. I have been living in this territory for nine years and I am still amazed at how beautiful the water is.


Hi Martina,

So blue, so clear and so inviting.

The BVI lifestyle looks to be one that most would envy.

I've got to get there someday and try it out for myself.

Might knock on your door and you can take me sailing as well!

Thanks for sharing and thank that son of yours again for giving you a chance to capture some great memories.
