  The British Virgin Islands - Country and People

 The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean to the east of Puerto Rico. The islands are one part of the Virgin Islands archipelago, the other islands belong to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 The British Virgin Islands consist of the main islands Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke but there are over fifty other smaller islands and cays. About fifteen islands are inhabited. The largest, Tortola, is approximately 12 miles long and 3 miles wide. The islands have a total population of about 22,000, of whom approximately 18,000 live on Tortola. The capital, Road Town, is located on Tortola.
 We have chosen Anegada Island because it is the only non-volcanic but coraline island, probably the best for snorkeling and SCUBA diving. And it is flat, good for ham radio purposes.
