Friday 6/12/2019

Best Beaches:Smuggler's Cove to Nail Bay. A great beach day and gorgeous day to be out on the water.
Wind: E11-15 knots.
Seas: 2-3ft. N swell fading through the day. Inter-island channels will be fine - just a little choppy. 
Rain: Mostly dry but always a chance of a passing shower. 
Cruise Ships: RT x1 (large); JvD x1; VG x1
Warnings: No warnings but watch out for cruise guest crowding at the hot spots of CGB, The Baths and the Caves.
GSA's Hot Tips:
- Mangrove paddle tour on Beef Island leaves at 0830 from Town, or 0900 from Beef Island!
- Excellent day for a first time surfing lesson.

Saturday 7/12/2019

Summary: Moderate winds between ESE-ENE; minimal swell; mostly sunny, low chance of rain. 
Best Beaches: All N facing beaches from Smuggler's Cove to Savannah. Real nice.
Wind: ESE-ENE: 10-15knots. 
Seas: 1-2ft - Almost no swell on the N side. Channels will be just fine for inter-island journeys and daysail adventures.
Rain: Low chance of rain.
Cruise Ships: RT x1; JvD x1
Warnings: No warnings today.

GSA's Hot Tips:
- Great conditions for a surfing lesson at Josiah's Bay!

Sunday 8/12/2019

Summary: Winds begin to move NE and get fresh by the end of the day. No swell. Mostly sunny.
Best Beaches: Smuggler's Cove, CGB, Brewers and Well Bay will be the least affected by wind but since it won't get strong until later, most beaches will be great.
Wind: ENE-NE 11-16 knots. Increasing all day. 
Seas: 1-2ft NE - Barely any of the now NE swell remains. Inter-island channels will be choppy but fine so still good day-tripping or day-sailing.
Rain: Definitely maybe.
Cruise Ships: RTx2 (medium)
Warnings: No warnings forseen at this stage.

GSA's Hot Tips:
- Come for a paddle in the mangroves on Beef Island.
- Surf lessons at Josiah! Ideal for beginners.
- Go sailing, snorkelling, diving, day-tripping to another island! 

Forget the breeze. These bales are a drop in the ocean but they're headed out for recycling thanks to Green VI's ever growing pilot scheme. Please look out for their recycle points around the BVI and help keep these off our shorelines and islands.
