USVI Spring Yacht Show, St. Thomas, USVI
May 16 - May 18
Some 20 to 30 sailing multihulls, monohulls and power yachts are expected to tie-up stern-to along the Charlotte Amalie Waterfront, for the Virgin Islands Professional Charter Association’s (VIPCA) Spring Yacht Show. The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) has recently renovated the Waterfront bulkhead with new cleats and fendering. This will enable yacht brokers to easily step aboard while also being a few steps away from the USVI’s historic capital city. “May is typically when the yachts start to get ‘next seasons’ activity for their calendars, so the May show is a great opportunity to give clients an up-to-date status of the yacht. This time of year also gives brokers a good idea of how the season is going for the crews and how well they are maintaining the yachts. After all, all the yachts look great at the November show because they all are just coming from the boatyard and are shiny clean and fresh with new items,” says Kevin Jonas, Chair of VIPCA Spring Yacht Show Committee and president of Mainsail Yacht Charters LLC, in Bedford, NH. https://vipca.org/usvi-charter-yacht-show/
