Are there any day sails to Virgin Gorda from STJ? We have checked with several of the local companies, and they apparently only use power boats. Day sails seem to be limited to the area around STJ.

It is just too long a distance and the speed of a sailboat combined with the variable wind direction for a sailboat makes it impossible to go to Virgin Gorda and Back to STJ in the time frame available for a daysail -------------------- Sailing upwind to VG - clear Customs and Immigration - spend any time on Virgin Gorda - sail home and clear US Customs and Immigration in STJ.
A power vessel can do it -- it is over 60 NM round trip and against the prevailing winds on the way there .
