ABOUT THE VICL
Since 1968, the VICL has upheld a role not only as the U.S. Virgin Islands only professional yacht charter organization; but also that of informational reference desk and advocate for our Territories local marine community. VICL has consistently promoted the charter yacht business and done much to enhance the Virgin Islands' reputation as having the best sailing waters in the world! Our organization has successfully faced numerous challenges over the years, and has been consistent and persistent in championing the Virgin Island's boating industry.
The U.S. Virgin Islands offers so much for yachting enthusiasts from our professional privately crewed yachts to our diverse secluded coves. Add these attributes to our warm year-round temperatures and ideal sailing conditions and you have the perfect location for the ultimate yacht charter vacation!
The VICL has been the non-profit driving force behind the crewed charter vacations since 1968. We are the singular point of reference for all charter vacation opportunities, charter business marketing, and tourism related inquiries. We also represent the best interests of the industry as it applies to all Governmental marine issues for the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The VICL also acts as an informational reference desk and advocate for our marine community. This includes businesses and individuals who would like to take part in our marketing opportunities throughout the year as well as our world renowned 3 day annual boat show.

This years Culinary Contest was a HUGE success as 16 yachts displayed their skills in hopes of winning prizes that include a 2 page story in "All At Sea Magazine", a spa package for two at Peter Island Resort, gift certificates to local businesses, and assorted cases of "The Seeker Wine".
"As a former Charter Yacht Chef and Restaurateur, I must say that this years culinary contest was the best that I have witnessed in the boat show! The structure of a professional competition was answered enthusiastically by all entrants, as was the adherence to ingredient specific requirements. The skill level of preparation and presentation has certainly been elevated over the years with this seasons' being the best in my opinion. It was a pleasure to see (and taste!) these creations and note the many new Yacht Chefs. The entries were (correctly) a pleasure for both the eye and palate. Congratulations to you all and Cheers to a fulfilling charter season. See you next year!"
