PROVISIONING DETAILS

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

WATER SPORT EQUIPMENT

Please order Water Sports Equipment such as kayaks, SUPs, floats, noodles, in advance so we can put them aboard for you before you arrive. Here is the link to rentable items and prices. Just let us know what you want, and we will schedule delivery and have aboard your yacht when you arrive. We will add the cost to your folio and process payment using the credit card on file (with your authorization).


COVID ANTIGEN TESTING

The following rapid test is accepted for entry in the BVI and also can be used for re-entry in the USVI after your charter. Click Here to order kits. The important part with any of the rapid tests is that it is “supervised” and that you receive an official test result which can be used for travelling.

PROVISIONING FOR YOUR ARRIVAL

  1. Online ordering is easy. We like Rite Way’s shopping cart system best. See below for links. Please create your order at least 1 week in advance of your charter start. If you’re all fully vaccinated, you can go to the Riteway Convenient store next to TMM or we can give you two taxi vouchers for the big Riteway supermarket, in case you would like to do your own shopping.

  2. If you are sleeping aboard – please schedule delivery that same day, for 2 hours before your arrival.

  3. If you are not sleeping aboard – please schedule delivery for 2 hours before your arrival.

  4. Please email sandra@sailtmm.com, your food and beverage delivery dates and times.

  5. Your food, beverages, and ice will be stowed on your charter yacht prior to your arrival. Cold items will be put away; non-perishables will be left in boxes.

What does LTD have on it already?

  • Linens, pillows, dish and bath towels (2 bath, 1 hand, 1 washcloth/pp) NOTE: beach towels are not provided.
