Come winter, a lot of us in the Northern Hemisphere will be seeking warmer weather, sandy beaches, and a little adventure! Join us on the island of St. Martin to begin an adventure exploring the stunning leeward islands of the Caribbean. With fantastic sailing, stunning beaches, beautiful marine life and quaint towns, this is the perfect way to unwind from the frantic bustle of the Christmas period.

January 23rd – January 29th 2021 Itinerary

We’re going to leave the options open and take advantage of the weather forecasts to sail from St Maarten to either Barbuda and Antigua or St. Kitts and Nevis. Both options offer great passages and exploring completely different cultures and environments. Barbuda and Antigua will require an overnight sail and will allow us some of the most spectacular downwind sailing on the way back to St. Martin. If we visit St. Kitts and Nevis we’ll be a bit more off the beaten path but will have more access to the Caribbean lifestyle as it exists with little tourism. When we visited Nevis in 2017 we hiked to ‘The Source’ where the whole island gets their freshwater supply, right from the volcanic earth. Either option will offer plenty of beach and land time, but this trip will be especially sailing focused. We’ll offer navigation training, night watches, and seamanship lessons. This itinerary will begin on the French side of St Martin and end on the Dutch side of St. Maarten (yes, the very same island!), allowing us to explore the diverse cultures of this Caribbean paradise.

 

January 31st – February 6th 2021 Itinerary

We’ll meet on the Dutch side of St Maarten in the duty-free town of Phillipsberg and spend the first night aboard getting to know the boat and fellow crew. After a leisurely morning on day two, we’ll set sail for the French island of St. Barths and by sunset, we’ll be stern tied to the wharf, next to some of the biggest and fanciest yachts you’ve ever seen. Good chance you’ll catch a glimpse of Jimmy Buffet at La Select, where Cheeseburger in Paradise was written. A lot of the Caribbean has some European influence sprinkled around it, but St. Barths is a lot of Europe with a little of the Caribbean flavour. Mitch first visited there in 2008 as a student aboard an 88’ schooner and was awestruck. While it’s not his favourite island, it is in the top two! On the morning of day five, we’ll set sail to Anguilla, one of the most pristine Caribbean islands. Day six we’ll stay put on Anguilla for more beach time or exploring further afield. Day seven we’ll sail to the French side of St. Martin and disembark by mid-afternoon. We encourage some exploration of this island by land if you have a couple of extra days on your calendar.
