Sailing the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
The British Virgin Islands are located about 100 km east of Puerto Rico and was formerly a pirate paradise. Today they are the epitome of a fantastic sailing holiday in the Caribbean and a great way to explore the more than 125 small islands in the archipelago with a catamaran or a sail or motor yacht. The Virgin Islands, as it is called the British Virgin Islands also are among the quietest and safest yacht charter destinations in the world, ideal for sailing, snorkeling and swimming.
Sailing the LEEWARD ISLANDS, WINDWARD ISLANDS & GRENADINES
The incredibly beautiful islands of the Caribbean offer as well some more challenging sailing areas such as the Leeward and Windward Islands – they belong to the group of the Lesser Antilles. While St. Lucia, St. Vincent, the Grenadines / Grenada and Antigua are independent resp. belong to the British Commonwealth, Saint Martin, Martinique and Guadeloupe are French resp. Netherlands Antilles – and therefore more influenced by Caribbean-European life, including the Euro as currency. Other Caribbean island nations like St. Kitts and Nevis are completely politically independent states.
Sailing in CUBA
Pristine sandy beaches, picturesque coastal mangroves, crystal clear water – sailors in Cuba still enjoy a natural paradise. Most crews start their charter holiday in Cuba from Cienfuegos in the south of the island – before or after the sailing holidays, we recommend of course a visit to the capital, Havana.
