Fall is in full force and winter is creeping up on the horizon; a trip to the British Virgin Islands sounds more appealing by the day. Imagine yourself at the helm of a 40-foot charter boat, sailing through translucent teal waters and anchoring off soft white beaches. Now imagine the same scenario…for free.

There’s still time to enter SAIL’s Great Escape contest, where you could win a week-long charter with The Moorings or Sunsail.

All you need to do is visit us online at sailmagazine.com/greatescape and, in 400 words or less, tell us what your ideal BVI charter vacation would be. Maybe you’d like to spend six days in search of the best snorkeling spots; or perhaps you’re a foodie in search of the tastiest conch fritters the islands has to offer; or maybe you just want to visit as many beautiful anchorages as possible.

Whatever the shape of your ideal charter, be sure to get your submission in by 31 October. The winner will receive one of two week-long charter vacations in the BVI – either a bareboat charter with The Moorings or a Flotilla charter trip with Sunsail.

That dream may be closer than you realize. Enter now and make the Great Escape.
