The Sir Francis Drake Channel is the sailing and boating mecca of the British Virgin Islands. It is the primary water artery to all of the British Virgin Islands. The channel can be a bit treacherous if she is riled up, but the usual 15 to 20 knot winds keep the waters a bit choppy and the sail boaters happy. The winter season provides a bit stronger winds, and choppier conditions, but it is all worth the voyage when you arrive at your favorite destination in the BVI.
