Caribbean Sailing Strategies

Do you dream of sailing the Caribbean someday? Are you looking for your next tropical sailing destination?
Come along with us as we explore the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean and show our process for route planning. We show how we use the PredictWind app for weather forecasting and route planning to design a comfortable cruise in the Caribbean as we sail from St. Martin to Anguilla, St. Barts, Saba and then do a nightsail to the British Virgin Islands.

Two devastating hurricanes - Hurricanes Irma and Maria - hit the British Virgin Islands in 2017. In this video (in 2019), we return to sail the BVI and get an update on recovery efforts before making a fabulous 3-day offshore passage to the Turks and Caicos.


Distant Shores Meet SV Delos

This time on Distant Shores we run our boat up on the beach in Antigua. We get invited to a pirate birthday party, change the zinc on our Varifold propeller and meet up with YouTubers aboard SV Delos.
