Come sailing with Andy in the Caribbean next winter! Serenity, a 43-foot classic Shannon ketch will be our home and sailing platform for a few weeks of offshore sailing and island exploration. A tentative plan is in place, but it'll be flexible. Price is all-in, less meals ashore and travel to/from the boat. All provisions onboard, safety gear, etc. is covered. Here are the details:
Feb. 14-21, 2015: BVI to Grenada.
We'll assemble on the boat on the afternoon of Saturday, February 14, departing BVI on the morning of the 15th (Sunday). This will be a one-stop passage, calling at Dominica, my favorite island in all the Leewards & Windwards. We won't have much time, but might be able to get in a hike to the Boiling Lake and a visit to the Caribbean's best local market in Roseau. This is a tough passage, mostly to windward or close reaching, but it's worth it.
Check out the slideshow below for some photos of the Seven Sisters falls in Grenada, the market in Roseau, Dominica, the Boiling Lake Hike, and more from Leg 1 of the trip.
From Dominica we'll sail onwards to Grenada, the 'Spice Island,' where crew will disembark in St. Georges for the journey home. It's worth spending a few days ashore in Grenada before flying home. Check out the Seven Sisters waterfalls and the incredible markets around the city. And make sure you catch a ride in one of the local rasta buses!
Feb. 22-Mar. 1, 2015: Grenada to BVI.
We'll again assemble on the boat on the 22nd, and depart on Feb. 23rd. This is a one-way, nonstop passage of over 400 nautical miles offshore in the boisterous Caribbean. A great test of offshore sailing on a wonderful boat, and should be reaching conditions most of the way. You'll get the full deal here, and it's long enough to allow you to get into a nice rhythm. This is Caribbean passage making at it's best! Crew flies in to Grenada to meet the boat in St. Georges, and flies out of the BVI on completion of the voyage. Celestial Navigation package available as well. Contact Andy for details.
