Bitter End Yacht Club, North Sound, Virgin Gorda, cordially invites boaters and spectators to join us for our 9th Annual Holiday Boat Procession, Thursday December 24th. Bareboats (sail and power), and crewed charter boats, plus private boats of all sizes are all welcome. Based on the number of boats already committed to attend, it promises to be the best ever.

Dress in your holiday best for the festivities, which start at 5:45 pm at the head of the Bitter End channel. ‘We are really looking forward to a fun evening,’ said Sandra Grisham, Chief Operating Officer of Bitter End.

Santa (and his merry elves on the steel drums) will be aboard the Ponce de Leon leading the parade. Prizes will be awarded ashore (afterward) for well-lit and creatively-decorated boats. This year we are adding an ‘anchored yacht’ category for large yachts (those who might not feel comfortable negotiating the channel).

Join us ashore after the parade for our Christmas Eve celebration too.
