Earlier this year, The Moorings invited champion sailor Simon Shaw and his family to experience a charter onboard a Moorings 4500 yacht at the British Virgin Islands. With over 15 years of professional sailing experience, America’s Cup host Simon Shaw has achieved some incredible results during his career. As well as seven individual world and European championship wins, Simon also has two world match racing tour championships under his belt. Alongside competing he is also a tactical coach for the British Olympic sailing team.

Simon Shaw says, “My recent visit with The Moorings to The British Virgin Islands was an incredible experience. Our beautiful Moorings 4500 yacht was perfect for exploring the BVI with our baby boy - it was sheer paradise. It was very special to be able to share the adventure with my family, as I usually find myself at sea without them.”

Visitors to The Moorings stand J057B will have the chance to enter a competition to win a week’s luxury charter at the British Virgin Islands for two people, including return flights, courtesy of the British Virgin Island Tourist Board.

The boating industry continues to be key to the community of the British Virgin Islands, and in the last few months the sailing community has been critical since The Moorings base reopened in December 2017. The British Virgin Islands continues to be a very popular boating destination offering fantastic sailing and on the water experiences whatever your level of experience. The secluded beaches and turquoise waters are a haven for wildlife, and you might also catch a glimpse of a hawksbill turtle or yellowfin tuna, or hummingbird and iguana inland.
