The BVI climate is nearly ideal for all types of yachting and water sports. It features wonderfully consistent trade winds - usually 15-20 knots rising to 25 –30 during the “Christmas Winds”. The BVI has a sub-tropical climate with temperatures that range between 77-85° F (25-29° C). Temperatures usually drop 10° F (6 °C) at night.
Rainfall averages approximately 40 inches (102cm) per year. The wettest months are from September to December, the direct are February to April, which is one of the reasons why charter prices are high and availability scarce during the school holidays in February and around Easter.
During the Hurricane season, ranging from June to September, there is a risk that these massively dangerous and destructive storms may hit the BVI. Because of this, many charter operators shut down for the summer, although the Caribbean is a large area and the chances of a direct hit and small and you will get ample warning. During this time, you will find excellent charter rates often 1/2 of peak season.
