The "BVI Sailing" box has been placed on Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands, to honor the crew of the 2003 Texas Sailing team. Barefoot sailing in the BVI's is probably one of the best trips I have ever done, and Tortola is a great starting and ending place. Be sure to visit other great beaches on Tortola, such as Brewers Bay and Cane Garden Bay. This box is located on Lambert Beach.
From Road Town, use map to get to Lambert Beach Resort. You will have to park outside the resolt (parking signs) and walk in, then on to the beach. The resort is very nice, and if you want peaceful and romantic, it is the place.
To the Letterbox:
Once on the beach, go west to the end of the sand beach (about 200 yards). Standing at the base of the large rock located in the water, face 240 degrees. The box is up the cliff face, over the 1st ridge of rocks. So, go 30 paces over the first ridge at 240 degrees to the base of the cliff. The box is above you at 240 degrees, about 15 feet high. Climb the rocks to the dead century plant (not much left of it now), with a pile of rocks next to it (at the 240 degree angle). You will notice a rain gully runs just left of the rock pile once you have climbed up. Also, the second large rock outcropping in the water is directly across from the box (due north). Box is under rock pile. Be sure your re-cover very well, since others may see if not covered, or weather may wash away. Enjoy Tortola!
