Whoever wants to escape the dreary German winter sails in the Caribbean: With editor-in-chief Jochen Rieker it goes to the most beautiful archipelago in the whole region, the British Virgin Islands. From Tortoleine week on, three catamarans will traverse the island world. Great beaches, dreamy anchorages, the National Park "The Baths" and in the evening a painkiller under palm trees with steel band rhythms in the background - an area for relaxed cruising. Nowhere in the Caribbean is it more protected and the distances to the next dream bay are shorter. The highlights of the Tortola area, Virgin Gord and Jost van Dyke are approached.
