Have you ever been on a sailing charter in the tropics?

Next week, we’re setting sail onboard Viramar yacht and giving you a behind the scenes peek into this sublime island experience between the dual destinations of the US and British Virgin Islands.

This chain of islands is renowned for its boating, not only due to the optimal wind and water conditions, but also because there are so many islands to check out within a short distance of each other, making it possible to not only visit a different island each day, but multiple islands in the same day.




Viramar charter yacht Virgin Islands


Viramar is a 56ft Lagoon Catamaran that can accept a maximum of 8 passengers. They charter in the US & British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas.

For more details on the boat, you can visit their website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.




Tyler & Erika Boruff Viramar Yacht Crew


Tyler and Erika Boruff (@boruffsonaboat) love being on, in, or under the water. After being land-based in the BVI, working at a local dive shop, they decided move into chartering. Both Tyler and Erika are SCUBA instructors and instructors for first aid and CPR. Tyler is a certified Red Cross Lifeguard. They were voted “Best Crew in Show” in their category at the VI Professional Charter Association’s 2017 USVI Charter Yacht Show.

We’re so excited to spend some time on the water with this dynamic team!


We’ll be making several stops during our time in the area including Pizza Pi VI, Bikinis on the Beach / Honeymoon Beach, St. John, VI Ecotours, Cooper Island Beach Club, Scrub Island, Hendo’s Hideout, and more.



We want to invite you – wherever you are in the world – to join us on this charter. Throughout our trip, we’ll be posting daily on our Facebook page and Instagram account so you can follow along. There will be plenty of island fun, behind the scenes peeks into what it’s really like to work on a boat in the tropics, and much more. After the trip, we’ll also be sharing photos and stories here on the blog about the adventures we had and the islanders we met along the way.

You can also connect with the attendees on their individual websites and social media accounts:





If you’re based in the US or British Virgin Islands, we hope to run into you on one of our many stops.

See you on the water!

Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:


Chrissann’s home rock in the British Virgin Islands feels bigger to her than it actually is. Though after spending five years on a teensy one acre island, the current 13-mile long rock she’s residing on now IS ginormous, at least by comparison. As with everything in the tropics, it’s all about perspective.

Once upon a time she used to care about things like matching her purse to her pumps but these days, any activities that require a bra and shoes go under careful, is-this-even-worth-it consideration. If island life has taught her anything at all, it’s that few things are more rewarding than time spent in the pool with a cocktail in hand.

As the Editor in Chief of this site, she spends her days working from home with her blue-eyed sidekick, Island Dog Diego, writing, editing, and cultivating content in the hopes of bringing some laughter and lightness to her fellow island souls. She recently published her first children’s book, When You’re a Baby Who Lives on a Rock, and is pretty pumped to share it with all of the island mamas out there. Her days off are typically spent boating, hiking, and meeting up with the neighborhood’s imperious roadside goats, who she shamelessly bribes into friendship. While normalcy was never listed as one of her special skills, Caribbean life may indeed be responsible for new levels of madness. She attributes at least a smidge of her insanity to the amount of time she spends talking to drunk people.

If you’re somehow still reading this and feel inclined to find out more about this “Chrissann” of which we speak, you can also take a gander at her eponymous website or follow her daily escapades on Instagram @womanonarock.
