: Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands: This Sailing Expedition exemplifies just how much offshore and coastal sailing we can do in a relatively short time! To be exact: 300 nautical miles; visiting 11 different islands; and, making six open-sea passages. The varied culture and natural beauty of each anchorage is stunning—an engaging blend of vibrant and laid-back shore-side diversions, from metropolitan to rustic
: The Virgin Islands to St. Barth’s: For this trip we depart from Charlotte Amalie, sailing through the world-renowned BVI cruising grounds northeast to Anegada. From there, we take on a challenging open ocean crossing of 85 nautical miles to Anguilla, including a visit at Marigot Bay (France’s Caribbean outpost), prior to our return to the USVIs via Christiansted. Possible side trip to St. Barth’s, conditions permitting.
: Anguilla to Montserrat: A total of 290 nautical miles of sailing through the Leeward Islands.
We embark at Marigot Bay, St. Martin, traveling as far south as Montserrat to gaze at its active volcano. Next, a northeast leg through cosmopolitan Antigua and remote Barbuda, followed by the challenge of 93 nautical miles of sailing in the open Atlantic Ocean. We finally call at Anguilla before returning to St. Martin (France).
: Guadeloupe to Martinique: Lush tropical rainforests, brilliant coral reefs, the dormant but baneful Mt.
Pelée volcano, waterfalls and hotsprings—and even a brackish mangrove river—are what this Expedition covers in 250 nautical miles of sailing. We’ll clear in and out of three island nations and sail plenty in the open-ocean, as well as anchor in placid Caribbean waters—genuine, unembellished, metropolitan, and darned interesting!
:St. Lucia to Grenada: This Sailing Expedition takes us alongside a whale migration route traveled by
dozens of species; and to diverse anchorages bustling with Caribbean city-life, as well as mellow bays home to local fisher-folk. We'll sail 310 nautical miles...and with each island we leave behind, another is replaced in view immediately off our bow. The beautiful Windward Islands!
