Nov. 7, 2003 The 29th annual fall V.I. Charteryacht League Show kicks off Monday at Crown Bay Marina. The show runs through Wednesday. It gives charter brokers a fresh look at crews and boats just before the busy winter season
"The brokers can see what the vacations are all about," said Karen Spector, office administrator at the Charteryacht League.
She said 41 boats have signed up to exhibit. Spector expects 110 brokers to attend the show. Most are from the United States and the Virgin Islands, but this year will see one from Spain and one from Canada as well.
While the show is for brokers and boats, the public is welcome to wander the docks to look at the boats. However, the general public cannot go aboard.
The show also includes seminars for new brokers and features social events such as a roving cocktail party and familiarization trips on the boats.
The show is the oldest in the Caribbean. The British Virgin Islands also hosts a fall show, which concludes Saturday.
