Little Thatch Island, BVI.

After that great cruise down island on Water Lily, we leased Little Thatch for six years. There were a few furnished buildings on the island, making it ideal for us to open it up as a small hotel. That small building on the left of the picture is the beach bar, Club 16. (Don’t ask—that’s what the owners of the island called it.) 

Little Thatch 

Those six years were so filled with happiness, excitement and adventure that they cover ten chapters in my book. And don’t forget—I’m giving away (while the supply lasts)  a flint that I salvaged from the slave ship Constantine. I am also including a Certificate of Authenticity regarding the flints. This is with each book bought via this Blog.


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
