Christmas news from Sandcastle, Virgin Islands Crewed Yacht Charters

Charter Yacht Sandcastle, a 72-foot Irwin ketch owned & operated by Rik & Ann, sent us a bit of news along with their holiday greetings...

Virgin Islands Yacht Charters

Life on board seems busier than ever, cockpits full of old friends and new, lots of boat projects, blue water and warm breezes.

Rik & Ann with nets ready --- Lionfish in its new home
We caught our first lionfish, they are invading the Caribbean although the Virgin Islands seem lucky and we have very few so far. Our lionfish is lucky, too... we were going to send it to lionfish heaven but it went to live in a government aquarium for display instead!

During our Thanksgiving charter we saw a moonbow, it's like a faint rainbow in the moonlight. They seem much more rare than seeing a green flash at sunset.

We hope your year is full of wonders,
Rik & Ann
The charter yacht Sandcastle is a 72-foot Irwin ketch with a owner-operator crew of two. Sandcastle is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 6 guests. There are two full-width guest cabins with King-sized berths and ensuite head/shower, plus the library settee converts into a Queen or can be configured as single upper/lower bunks.  The settee in the forward cabin can also be converted into a twin berth, so the guest accommodation is quite flexible. Onboard diving available.
