The BVI is located at the high point of the curving archipelago that swings from Florida to Trinidad.  With their steady trade winds and numerous sheltered harbors they are a center for sea routes to every point of the compass, providing a great stopping off point in the trade lines between Europe and the riches of South America.  They have been described as “the place on the way to everywhere”.
