During your cruise through the Virgins, please remember that there are a limited number of places on the smaller islands capable of dealing with garbage.
Check first before carrying it ashore — don't throw it over the side, even if it means keeping it a couple of days in a plastic bag. Always carry any refuse back to your boat, rather than leaving it on the beach.
Many of the beaches throughout the Virgins are private property and the cruising yachtsman must exercise care to respect any notice indicating such restrictions.
