Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

During our boating trip we spotted the most amazing yacht!  Other than the Russian-owned "A", this boat may  be the largest one we've seen in the BVI.

Just off of Norman Island, Cakewalk, measuring more than 280 feet, caught our attention.  We looked it up online and it's the largest yacht built in the US in the last thirty years.  It can accommodate 14 guests comfortably with seven cabins and six different decks.

Check out this close up shot of "the garage" (I think it's called a bay on a yacht, but looked like one decked out garage to us!)  The crew was getting ready to take some of Cakewalk's passengers to shore via this smaller boat. 

I also read that Cakewalk has a large library on board complete with fireplace and grand piano, plus a jacuzzi tub, and helicopter pad.  WOW!  It must have been here in the BVI for the Superyacht Regatta and Rendevous.
