Established in 2007, Club La Costa Yacht Club has spent every summer exploring destinations such as Greece, Turkey, Italy and Spain. This announcement heralds the fleet’s first base outside the Mediterranean. One of the world’s top sailing spots, the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) have been chosen as the home port of its newest yacht. Comprised of four main islands – Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada – the archipelago offers an unspoiled Caribbean experience with calm currents, consistent trade winds and protected bays. With this new base in Tortola, Yacht Club members have the opportunity to sail throughout much of the year.
Captain Leor Revivo, who has more than 10 years’ expertise in the marine holiday industry, is excited about Club La Costa Yacht Club’s recent addition and destination.
“We launched the Yacht Club in 2007 and have been sailing the Mediterranean around the islands of Greece, Turkey, Italy and Spain, offering our members inspirational and changing itineraries, ever since. Members do not need to be experienced sailors with our professional crew at their disposal. However, those who wish to can help the crew sail the yacht.
It has been my aspiration to sail the waters of the British Virgin Islands for some time. Now we can offer our members and their guests sailing at fantastic destinations all year-round.”
As well as warm and sunny climates, the Yacht Club’s Caribbean and Mediterranean destinations are ideal for a range of water sports including snorkelling, water-skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and scuba diving. In particular, the BVIs contain world-class dive sites such as the RMS Rhone off Salt Island and Kodiak Queen off the shore of Virgin Gorda. Club La Costa Yacht Club’s supervised dives will allow members to explore these sites.
Patrick Ingram, CLC World’s Managing Director, commented: “Membership of the Yacht Club is an introduction to the wonderful world of yachting. CLC World is proud of the standards it has set in the holiday ownership industry and Club La Costa Yacht Club continues to be an exciting innovation that reinforces this excellence.”
