Enjoying the Bitter End Yacht Club

We have found the perfect place to have a family vacation. There is something for everyone here! There is every kind of water sport anyone could want: sailing, swimming, sail boarding, kite boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, pool, beach, etc. It is located in the North Sound at the north end of Virgin Gorda near Richard Branson’s Necker Island.

It has been a family owned establishment for many years. The property is well designed fitting into the side of the mountain. The cottages are hardly visible until you are right up to them. There are several restaurants and shops, too. The bakery was most inviting after living on the boat for a month.

We were docked across from S/Y Blackbird, the 80 foot racing vessel that won the 2011 Caribbean 1500. It was the first time we had met the owners and their family. Our previous contact was with their Captain, Michael and his family.

The young men of Blackbird were into scuba diving and kite surfing. You have to be young and strong for that one!

There are a number of anchorages as well as marinas in the North Sound so I could see spending a fair amount of time in this area - especially with guests who don't want to much open water sailing. After we left the Bitter End Yacht Club, we headed to Cane Garden Bay to pick up some locally distilled Arundel Rum. It is only sold in the BVI so  you have to get it when you can!
