This is the best Cruising guide I've used. It works really well for planning routes & for checking out the remote little bays that my wife and I love. The photo's are good and the hand written drawings of the bays are very clear and easy to read. My wife rates this as her favourite of the guide books we have bought. Perhaps part of the reason for its success is that it does not try to cover too wide an area in one guide, and the people who have written clearly love the BVI.
