Aboard your charter sailing yachts in the Caribbean take the opportunity to visit places such as the British Virgin Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Virgin Islands offer ideal sailing conditions and many options for anchoring in a secluded cove with relatively calm waters.
Apart from beautiful scenery, Antigua and Barbuda offer many little harbors. Good yacht bases include English Harbor and Jolly Harbor. Antigua hosts two main sailing events every year: the Classic Yacht Regatta and Sailing Week.
Sailing in the Caribbean cannot go without exploring the Grenadines, a chain of beautiful islands, most notable being Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Palm Island, Union Island and Petit St. Vincent. A thing to keep in mind is that the strongest currents and biggest waves are usually on the northern and eastern sides of most islands.
The main sailing season in the Caribbean runs from November to July and the other part of the year is known as the hurricane season, although hurricanes are generally rare in the southern Caribbean. Note that this is the least expensive time for chartering a yacht in the Caribbean and you can get some really good deals.
Whenever you decide to sail in the Caribbean, you can find something for yourself – from secluded beaches and coves to wild party locations – and enjoy your sailing vacation to the fullest!
