British Virgin Islands: Tour Paradise with a Blue-Water Legend

  #
By Bernadette Bernon

Circumnavigator Tania Aebi has just signed on as the special host of CW's 2008 catamaran flotilla in the British Virgin Islands. This is one of the magazine's most popular flotilla voyages--it almost always sells out--and this is first time that Aebi, who became the youngest female solo sailor to circle the globe, will lead the trip.

In May 1985, when she was only 18 years old, Tania cast off from the docks of South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan and sailed 27,000 miles around the world alone on her 26-foot sloop, Varuna.

I stand before a frozen waterfall nestled deep in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and the cold disappears. My breath quickens. Adrenaline fills my limbs. I've come to climb this foreboding wall of silent, thick ice.
