GETTING READY GUIDE

The following information has been compiled for our charter guests from a variety of sources. We hope you find it useful in getting ready for your charter.
What to Expect:

The Crew:
This is a truly custom made vacation and is designed around the desires and wishes of you and your party. Your crew will do their best to make sure your charter is a fantastic experience that you will remember with fond memories and want to repeat. The crew will act as your Captain, cook , chief snack preparer and "Sundowner cocktail" maker if you've chosen the provisioning plan. You will be cleaning up after yourself and helping doing the dishes after your meals..

The Boat:
Lunacy is a cruising sailboat. It is much smaller than a cruise ship, and much larger than a row boat. Most people consider Lunacy a nice boat. You be the judge. Lunacy is set-up to provide up to 4 guests plus crew with a safe and enjoyable sailing experience. She is very well equipped. As a result, she is also very complicated. The crew is prepared to help you with all aspects of using the boat. On deck, a sailing vessel can be a bit like an obstacle course, with winches, lines, and other hardware to negotiate. A boarding ladder is used to get on and off from the dingy or the water. This can make a sailboat charter unsuitable for anybody with physical limitations or medical issues.

Accommodations:
Each bunk or cabin is “boat sized”, like being in a camper that has a funny shape, and has what is roughly a double or single bed. Your bathroom, or “head” as it is called on a boat, is another small space with a sink and marine toilet -- similar to the lavatory aboard an airliner. Except when sleeping, changing, or attending to personal matters, you will likely not be in your Vberth cabin or salon bunk. Rather, you will be relaxing in the salon, cockpit, on deck, in the water, or doing something ashore. Each bed is made-up with bed linens, pillows, bath towels.
Storage for your use and storage for things like your collapsed luggage is very limited by lack of space. Pack lite..
Showering aboard sailboats is like camping. Fresh water is a precious commodity aboard a boat. We can only take a limited amount of fresh water with us that must last the duration of your charter. “Navy” showers are the rule – get wet, soap-up, rinse-off. On most charters, the typical place to shower is on-deck. or we just jump in the water get out soap up and jump back in to rinse in the salt water then up on deck to rinse with fresh water

Food and Meals:
A varied menu will be designed around the food selections on your general preferences and availability of items in the markets here. Unless you have chartered with the Captain Only option, your crew will prepare and serve your snacks and meals aboard. If you like, you can offer to help. The crew will have some beverages available, if you want something special then it can be arraigned for us to purchase it ahead of time for you or you can pick it up along the way..In the Caribbean, Rum is King -- plentiful, good, and a favorite of the crew for making “boat drinks” before sunset, and sipping after dinner.

Dining Ashore:
Although the food aboard is included if you've chosen the provisioning plan, you may decide to take some meals ashore, You may enjoy the ambiance and menu at some local establishments, which can range from a fancy dinner to a traditional island beach barbeque. When you do dine ashore, you pay the bill. Most guests find a lunch and a dinner ashore provides some additional variety to your charter. The point is for you to enjoy the islands.

Weather:
The extremely consistent weather conditions in the Virgin Islands are one of the reasons this area is considered to be one of the best cruising grounds in the world. The trade winds are nearly constant ranging from 10-25 knots, allowing for wonderful sailing. These cooling trade winds also keep it pleasant aboard. The water temperature ranges from 76 to 85. Daytime temperatures rarely drop below 75°F in the winter or rise above 90°F in the summer. Even on a really warm day, if you are in the shade, you are comfortable because of the breeze. The night temperatures vary by only 10 degrees.
A typical forecast on any given day will have scattered clouds and a 30% chance of rain. These showers can happen any time, but are most common in the early morning hours prior to sunrise, and last less than 30 minutes each. An occasional frontal disturbance or tropical wave moving through the Virgin Islands may make for rainier conditions for a day or two. Hurricane season runs from June through November, but tend to occur closer to the Virgin Islands from late August to late September.
Activities:
The primary activities for your charter will be based from aboard Lunacy. These include sailing, swimming, snorkeling, sunning, relaxing, reading, napping, eating, and drinking.Additional activities like diving, parasailing, tours and other excursions are available depending on the island. The cost of these additional activities is not included in your charter fee.

Itinerary:
The itinerary is based on your preferences of activities. The captain will tailor the charter to fit your requests. The Virgin Islands offer a tremendous variety of bays and anchorages to visit. It is typically not possible to see everything in one visit. You may need to return again in the future for another charter to see more. The itinerary will also be flexible to accommodate your schedule and activities. Weather, safety, and other considerations may also affect the itinerary.

Motion Sickness:
If you are susceptible to motion sickness, then ask your doctor for a prescription, bring a nonprescription treatment, or use acupressure wristbands. Be sure to treat yourself for motion sickness before you are experiencing symptoms.
Power:
Electrical power in the Virgin Islands is the same 115 VAC as the US mainland, and Lunacy also has 115 VAC with domestic type outlets, and 12 VDC with car type accessory outlets. Charging of devisies to be done only when the engine is running You will not need to bring any special power adaptors or inverters. You should bring whatever power cords and chargers are required for any electronic devices you are bringing.

Attire:
Aboard:
For much of your charter you will either be sailing, aboard at an anchorage, in the water, or going back and forth from a beach or dinghy dock in the dinghy. Figure that most of the time you will be in a swimsuit or shorts and shirt. The privacy and seclusion that being on a sailboat provides may make it acceptable for guests to sunbathe or swim ala natural at times during the charter if so desired.
Ashore:
You will need to cover up properly when ashore. There are some beach bar/ restaurants where swimming attire is tolerated, but most establishments do ask that you wear appropriate clothes like shorts with shirts, or wraps for the women. A few finer restaurants may prefer a collared sports shirt and slacks for the gentlemen. No jackets or ties. "Smart Casual" is the rule of thumb for everyone. Around town, be sure to wear a shirt and shorts, or a cover-up over your bathing suit. Sometimes shoes are optional, but bikini tops are not appropriate.

Footwear:
While aboard we will all be in bare feet. Your sandals, flip-flops, or shoes will be for doing things ashore. If you must use footwear aboard, a dedicated pair with soft soles and white bottoms that have never previously seen terra firma would be preferred.

Packing:
Most folks tend to over pack for their trip. The more you bring, the more you have to carry around and store in your bunk or Vberth cabin. If your bag is uncomfortable for you to carry it then you've packed way too much. Travel delays can happen, so consider having a change of clothing in your carry-on luggage. You may want to get into something cooler and more comfortable upon arrival. You may also want to have critical items with you like medications, travel documents, credit and ATM cards, cash, cameras, and other things of value. DON’T FORGET YOUR PASSPORT.
Many charter guests simply like to “carry-on” their things. To make this easier with today’s travel restriction, we provide the following items.
You will not need to bring:
Bathing towels
Beach towels
As to sunscreen, please do not bring oily lotions that can cause the decks to become slippery and can stain the boats upholstery.

Luggage:
Only pack in soft, collapsible luggage, a duffle-bag, or backpack. The storage for your bags is limited , and there is no storage space for rigid suitcases.
Clothing:
You will need casual wear such as shorts, T-shirts, swimwear, beach cover-ups and some footwear for ashore.
sunglasses and a hat
2to4 pairs of shorts
5 to 6 shirts
2 to 3 bathing suits
optional – bathing suit cover-up
for dinner ashore;
There is a saying, "Bring half of the clothes and twice the amount of money that you think you'll need."

Snorkel Gear:
You can bring your own mask and snorkel, or use one from the assortment aboard . Fins can be a bit more difficult for travel. Please let us know the shoe sizes for all guests in your party so we can insure in advance that we have the right size fins available, and let us know if someone is bringing their own fins.
Feel free to bring your favorite tunes on CD, iPod, or MP3 player. Lunacy has a music ipod , but you may want to bring some of your own to suit your personal tastes. Also, you will find a small selection of books aboard to supplement what you bring.

Phone:
With today’s roaming services most mainland cellular phones will work in the Virgin Islands. Check with your carrier regarding rates and roaming charges when making a connection from the USVI or BVI.

Money:
The US dollar is the currency used throughout the Virgin Islands, both in the USVI and BVI. Many places accept credit cards. Traveler’s checks seem to be increasingly hard to find places to cash. Banking conveniences in the islands are not as readily available as they are stateside, so bring ample cash for situations where credit cards are not used.

Internet:
The ability to get on-line to access the Internet and get e-mail is increasing throughout the islands. You may find hot spots and Internet cafes at some of our anchorages.

Island Etiquette:
The Virgin Islands has its own culture and customs that can be different from the mainland. It is proper to greet the locals with a "Good Morning", "Good Afternoon" or "Good Evening." Smile and be polite. Remember that everyone is on “Island Time”, so patience is a good thing. Food services and other tasks may take awhile. The beauty of the Virgin Islands is preserved in part by government regulations and the considerate behavior of its visitors. Many of the areas we will be visiting are in marine parks and sanctuaries where the flora and fauna is protected. Do not bring samples of marine life aboard. Leave them in the water or on the beach for others to enjoy. A good philosophy is to “Take only pictures, leave only footprints.”
The use, transportation, or possession of illegal drugs or narcotics, including marijuana, or of any other contraband, or the participation in any other unlawful activity is strictly prohibited.
No smoking on boat. and please treat the boat with the same respect you do your own home, as this is ours. Thanks, steve

Steve and Janet went above and beyond to make our sailing adventure so wonderful. We had the best time surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and, of course, sailing! It was the perfect combination of excitement and relaxation. Steve and Janet know just where to go and all the sweetest spots. The food was amazing! It is actually hard to eat well in the BVIs, and Steve really heard my request for lots of veggies and other special requests, and came up with excellent food from scratch every meal. We felt so taken care of, so comfortable and at ease, and enjoyed the company of this awesome couple so much. These two really love what they do, and it makes for a unique and unforgettable adventure on many levels. Highly recommended ! :)

Sailing with Steve on the Lunacy was a great adventure and one that we were very happy to experience. From the beginning, Steve worked with our needs and requests as to setting an agenda and accommodating places we were hoping to visit. Even without wifi for days, he was timely in his response. The description of the boat, and house rules posted on his page are accurate. This boat is no doubt Steve’s pride and joy and you will see the TLC that he has put into it. Our party included 4 adults and we made the space work pretty well for us. Expect tight quarters and limited space. Pack light, be willing to sleep with some movement as the boat sways a bit (which we loved) and you will be just fine with the space. We expected that as part of the adventure. We were able to power up some electronics when needed and we even ate at the table many nights. While sailing we were mostly in the cockpit and when anchored we spent much of time in the water or laying on the deck. The window over the V-berth cabin helped with a breeze at night as did the small fans throughout the cabin. The pictures are a good representation of what the space looks like. It’s a good reminder of how simple life can and should be. If you want to help or learn to sail, Steve is more than willing to include you in the work. We helped pull in sails, drop anchors and steer while holding a heading once we were under way. He has snorkel gear we used almost at every anchor and a few SUP boards if you are interested as well. As for the food, I will say that you are in for a treat. We were thinking that with limited space and eating at anchor most of our trip, we would be lacking in choice and diversity – not so! Steve’s experience in the kitchen and his ability to create a varied, tasty and fresh meal each night was a welcomed surprise. Homemade hummus, salsa and spaghetti sauce were simply amazing! Breakfast sandwiches and hot coffee every morning was a great way to start our day. Steve was always happy to prepare and cook while our crew helped with the cleaning. In short, we all had a great time and loved our experience. If you are looking for a bit of adventure, a trustworthy captain who quickly becomes a friend and don’t mind engaging a bit on your vacation, then you will have a great time. If you are looking for pure luxury and maid service upon a “floating condo” this might not be the choice for you. Our group would return for sure and the BVI’s is a magical place with people that seem to find “the way life should be” attitude and ease of each day.

This is a wonderful way to visit the BVI. We were treated like friends and they shared their life with us as opposed to just providing a berth. Definitely take up the food option as we have not found healthier tastier fare in the area. We would definitely recommend that you include lunacy in your visit plans.

As far as choosing a totally perfect, zero-stress, engaging, and most of all FUN return to BVI, this hit the mark completely. Steve and Janet are both excellent hosts, made sure we wanted for nothing, and that we had total control over our itinerary. We will certainly be booking with them again in the near future, particularly because of their willingness to cater to us as professional photographers. HIGHLY recommended for any photogs looking to change their perspective on the islands and looking to shoot from the water in. From picking specific routes for the best shots, to making sure we had smooth anchorages for the early morning sunrise shoots, Steve and Janet were not only accommodating, but also interested in making sure we had the exact angles, amount of time, and plenty of opportunities to make incredible images. We very much look forward to visiting them at their Grenadines ports of call asap! We miss the boat, we miss the food (OMG chicken and salsa lettuce wraps) but most of all we miss Steve and Janet. Warm, inviting, and consummate sailing professionals. As our first chartered boating experience, we cannot recommend them highly enough. The vessel itself is amazing and clearly a labor of ongoing love. Comfortable, spotlessly clean, and restful- everything one would ever look for in a destination or lodging experience. You will be hard-pressed to find a more perfect BVI adventure at a more affordable price. "First-rate" doesn't do the vessel or the hosts justice....... Just book it and relax!
