The Bight, Norman Island

Day trippers, resident boaters, and charter yachts rarely miss a chance to visit the Bight at Norman Island, at least once in their excursion. If sailing or motoring into the Bight, be on the lookout for swimmers in the calm flat water. Be advised, all anchorages in the BVI have a no wake speed limit, the Bight included. Shouts from the Bight tend to fall on the weekend in the late afternoon to early evening, and frequently involve alcohol. Typically the emergencies from the Bight are either yacht groundings or minor to severe injuries. Use good judgement and take precaution when returning back to Tortola after sunset to avoid shallow water or land. Keep an eye out for jellyfish.
