BVIs Annual Event To Be Sunny But Also With Showers
But, thankfully, no hurricanes.
The weather forecast calls for both sunny skies and showers – perhaps thunderstorms, during the event. In fact, it starts out offering both, according to the short and long-range weather forecast.
The first two days are expected to have sunny skies with possible thundershowers, with the next two days mostly sunny. When the weekend arrives – and here, there’s no difference in a Saturday or a Monday – thundershowers are expected.
That will give way to clear and sunny weather on Sunday before the showers return the rest of the week. Monday will start out sunny and the sun will not possibly return until Thursday. In between it’s rain and thunderstorms. Not exactly ideal sailing situations and for being on a boat.
Or for visiting the Baths, the caves or scuba diving. Tho it doesn’t matter what the weather is at Willie T’s, the party pirate ship anchored in the BVIs where you get wet from jumping off the stern (clothing optional!) so that may turn into a wild party scene during the rainy days.
And your dollars at the Soggy Dollar Bar are soaked anyway. Plus, the “dingy wars” are all about getting soaked by super soakers.
As far as the themed parties, go, costumes won’t likely get wet for the Pirates Party on the first night but could get soaked for the Masquerade Party on Saturday and the Mile High Party on Sunday.
At least the forecast does not include any hurricanes. Hurricane Matthew, of course, went through the Caribbean last week and in the past hurricanes have sideswiped the Virgin Islands during the regatta, causing it to be cut short by a day.
