Caribbean sailing trip: Palm-lined white sandy beaches ...

… consistently ideal sailing conditions in breathtakingly beautiful exotic surroundings, and hundreds of islands and islets waiting to be explored.
Wild and pristine, the Caribbean surpasses all expectations and presents itself as the perfect sailing destination for every nature, water, and sailing enthusiast.

The Caribbean Sea is huge, and equally extensive are the sailing options for a successful, diverse, and unforgettable sailing vacation along the very different Caribbean Island nations.

The starting and ending point for the sailing trips in the Caribbean is the island of Martinique, which belongs to France and is situated in the middle of the Lesser Antilles Island group.
From here, two very rewarding sailing options emerge: one leads north into the region less frequented by sailors, but no less beautiful, with the lushly vegetated islands of Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, and Antigua.

The other, southern route takes you to the pristine island world of the Windward Islands, along St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia, up to the Grenadines with the Tobago Cays, a marine park of paradisiacal beauty.
With the turquoise crystal-clear water and impressive reefs, all Caribbean clichés come true here – the perfect sailing and vacation idyll.

Sailing in the Caribbean: it’s all about perfect sailing days, lush tropical nature, and picture-perfect bays, for swimming, snorkelling, plenty of time for excursions and discoveries, as well as lots of lasting memories.

Dream destinations in the warm trade winds: the sailing areas of the Caribbean offer blue-water sailing at its finest and are suitable for pleasure-seeking, adventurous, and discovery-minded sailors of all kinds.

General Information

The fantastic sailing area of the Caribbean, specifically the Lesser Antilles, offers great sailing trips for all sailing enthusiasts, whether beginners or experienced sailors of all ages. These can be individuals, seniors, couples, groups of friends, groups from sailing schools or clubs, or families with children over 16 years old.

The sailing skill-requirements are more in the middle range rather than the lower range. Manageable day trips of up to six hours of sailing time make sailing accessible to all interested parties because a day of sailing is usually followed by a rest and relaxation day at some paradise bay or Caribbean Island before the sailing journey continues to the next hotspot.

Sailing in the Caribbean is anywhere between ambitious to sporty due to the consistent trade winds around 5  Beaufort and the long Atlantic swell. However, the holiday atmosphere is by no means neglected, mainly due to the continuously mild and sunny climate, the natural beauties, and the overall stunning flair.

The daily stages are longer than in the Mediterranean region (e.g. the Balearics), but usually, sailing is done only during the day and always in relative proximity to land. In the evenings, we anchor in a bay or moor at a buoy.
Depending on your mood, we can grill fish or lobster on board or treat ourselves to a nice restaurant before you go to sleep in the cabin on your bunk charter.

The sailing area of the Lesser Antilles captivates with its authenticity and uniqueness, its paradisiacal beauty, always warm, crystal-clear, and fish-rich waters, pleasant temperatures, and many other features.

The incredible diversity and exoticism of this area alone ensure that these voyages focus on pure holiday and sailing pleasures: experiences of exploration and nature in various forms, swimming, snorkelling, diving, relaxing, enjoying, guided land excursions led by locals, and last but not least, the deliciously flavourful Creole-oriented cuisine with its diverse and highly aromatic meat and fish dishes, vegetable, and fruit variations.

Event Details

The tour offers are usually designed for 2-week trips, from Saturday to Saturday. For one-week sailing trips, various trips in other areas are available, e.g. in the Balearic Islands or on the Atlantic sailing trips.
On the arrival day or shortly before, I will inform you about the exact location of the Fair Lady, where the yacht will be ready from 4  pm, freshly cleaned.
You'll have plenty of time to settle into your spacious cabin and get comfortable while enjoying a welcome drink.
Until all other crew members have arrived, we'll do the first shopping and get to know each other over a shared dinner, before setting sail the next morning after a briefing.

All sailing tours ensure a balanced mix of active sailing, in which everyone is welcome to participate, relaxation, and enjoyment.

After a full day of sailing, typically, a day off follows to allow time for nature, land, and meeting new people.
All other tour contents (such as spots to visit, islands, reefs, mooring in the buoy field or anchoring in the bay, BBQing on board or dining out, etc.) are discussed and planned together, taking into account the current circumstances, so that everyone's wishes and interests are considered.

I summarize the individual preferences and am happy to provide tips on the respective tour destinations or share my own experiences to ensure a successful sailing trip for all participants.
A breathtaking underwater world, picturesque sandy beaches and turquoise water await you. Our route (the classic Caribbean trip) leads past St. Lucia and St. Vincent, Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau to the Grenadines and the Tobago Keys or we choose the northern route past Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua and Montserrat. Book your dream vacation in the Caribbean and hoist the sails.

On the last day of the tour, we'll be close to our final destination, and we'll conclude the journey with a meal at a lovely restaurant. The next day, I kindly ask you to vacate the cabin by 10 a.m.

Arrival

All sailing options in the Caribbean start and end on the French island of Martinique, which is served by several daily domestic flights from Paris.
The marina can be reached by taxi or bus in about 45 minutes.

Please note: Even though the flight to Martinique is within Europe, a national ID card is not sufficient as a travel document! When entering and leaving the Caribbean island states, you always need a passport that must be valid for at least six months.

Which season is the best for sailing in the Caribbean?

Anyone planning a sailing trip in the Caribbean has countless options. Be it with a cruise ship or a motorboat, with a catamaran or sailing yacht. It’s the same with the season: some people want to escape the gray winter, others want to escape autumn or a rainy summer in their homeland.
The optimal season for sailing in the Caribbean and gaining plenty of sailing experience is from around October to spring, i.e. April. During this time the weather is particularly pleasant because it is the dry season and there is not risk of hurricanes. Temperatures average 30° C all year round; The water is always pleasant for swimming and snorkeling.

How long does the sailing trip in the Caribbean last?

In order to experience the full diversity of the Caribbean and to be able to see more than just one island, Caribbean sailing trips usually last two weeks. During this time you can discover the Caribbean on your berth charter, explore the beaches and bays, but also gain sailing experience and take the helm with me as skipper at your side.

How do you get to the Caribbean sailing area?

The best way to get there is by plane. The arrival airport is in Martinique and the sailing trip ends here, so you don’t need an open-jaw flight on this sailing trips.
The easiest way to get to the French island from Paris is to take a domestic flight. The island, which is part of the Lesser Antilles, is part of the French overseas department. The intra-European flight from Paris to Fort de France takes approximately 8-9 hours.

What does the skipper do on a sailing trip?

In addition to planning the trip and preparing the sailing yacht, as skipper I am always available to provide tips and places to visit. The planning of the sailing trip is always discussed together in the group, but I can still share my experiences with you about the most beautiful coral reefs, the best places for snorkeling and many other experiences.

Didi ist ein erfahrener, unternehmungslustiger und humorvoller Skipper. Er kennt seine Yacht in- und auswendig und es macht ihm Freude, sein Seglerwissen weiterzugeben und den Gästen einen schönen Törn zu bieten. Man kann so viel segeln oder mithelfen, wie man möchte – immer unter dem wachsamen Auge des Skippers, der Fehler im Ansatz erkennt und sofort korrigiert.

Die Überführung von Pula nach Zadar hat mir riesigen Spass bereitet. Deine Revier- und Bootskenntnisse in bis zu 50kn Wind sind Gold wert und machen einen Törn mit Dir sicher und entspannt. Da ist die salzige Haut abends ein Vergnügen!
