I`m assuming that you already know how to sail?
If not, why not try this out ...http://www.offshore-sailing.com/
based on some of the ideas you guys/gals have, you may find me gone for about two weeks instead of just 3-4 days...
thanks a lot for the ideas. i hope i get far enough away--and detoxed enough--to let my mind cook up lots of creative ideas.
isn`t it so true that some of the best ideas come when you`re outside of the routine and being exposed to new stuff?
If sitting on a somewhat deserted beach on a small island at a casually elegant resort with no phones, television, clocks or kids appeals to you – try Ambergris Caye
So NYC is out of the question Rich?
We have great culture and some sun as long as your on the right side of the street but we have a pitchman on every corner....you would really love to hear some of these pitches.
new yakas are the BEST!!! i actually get hugly recharged when i find myself on the streets of the greatest city in the world, a moniker i have no problems giving to NYC. i can`t even explain the amount of energy i feel when i`m running the streets there with all of those incredibly capable, diverse, passionate, and ambitious people passing to and fro.
now, back to the beach.
Rich - BVI is THE place to go - 4 days is short but go! As far as I`m concerned, all the VI are great. Best vacations I have ever had.
Did 2 sailing trips there with other couples. 1995 a 50` Morgan with just a captain for week - we helped sail it. 2000 a 78` Irwin for a week with Captain, wife, and chef - certified divers. Go to www.bareboats.com and look up the sailboat "Irie" - the captain and his wife are just wonderful and the food was like gourmet every meal - price is all inclusive - drink and dive all you want. We broke their charter record on margaritas and beer drank on the 2000 trip.
Was planning a short trip down there this year but fell through. Found a place on St. Croix, USVI call Villa Margarita - http://www.villamargarita.com - check it out. Small place, but located well on this less crowded USVI compared to the other two. Most tourists don`t go here. We`ll get there one day and will look these folks up. Recommended by some friends who stayed here and they loved the inn, the owners, and the island. Prices are a little lower right now.
If you go, post a report once you return.
