The winter version of the HIHO! Don't miss it...

Spend a week boarding and sailing through the British Virgin Islands aboard

a captained yacht. Ocean Promotions, organizers of the annual Highland Spring

HIHO windsurfing & sailing adventure, have put together a kiteboard version

of their well-known Summer event. The inaugural FLY BVI event is scheduled for

Jan 6-13.

Based on the popular HIHO inter-island adventure concept FLY BVI will take

participants on a tour of the British Virgin Islands. The event will be staged

aboard captained 48ft catamarans provided by VPM Charters. FLY BVI will make

stops at the BVI's best kite boarding locations including Eustatia Sound beside

the Bitter End, Anegada & Sandy Cay.

Joining FLY BVI will by Eli Fuller of Antigua. No stranger to the BVI's, Fuller

has spent weeks sailing, windsurfing & kiting through the islands. He will

be on hand to offer kiteboarding instruction and tips. Summing up the week Fuller

explains, "My goal is to get beginners up and running and more advanced

boarders flying higher."

Like all HIHO events, FLY BVI isn't just about boarding. Other activities will

include snorkeling, diving, kayaking, sailing & surfing. FLY BVI is ideal

for non-boarders too.!

All HIHO events are offered as all-inclusive vacations where one price covers

accommodations, all meals, drinks, parties, most activities, cruising tax and

a HIHO t-shirt. FLY BVI costs $1,795 and is limited to a maximum of three yachts.

Register before November 6 and save $100.
