We have many great options for this passage. Starting from cosmopolitan Saint Martin we can make a warmup trip across to nearby Anguilla, or if the winds favour Saba we can visit that anchorage - a magical stop to visit this enchanted Dutch islands. Warm breezes from the west make for great sailing in the winter, often blowing at 15-20 knots this time of year. Then from Saba we will make an overnight passage to arrive at dawn to the British Virgin Islands. We should also be able to make a few sextant sights and practice our navigation. Then we can visit a few of the excellent anchorages in the lovely BVI. This is a great mix of the Leeward islands of the Caribbean plus the highlights of the British Virgin Islands.

Anguilla is low, sandy and relaxed with much less development than her neighbouring St Martin. The anchorage is spectacular with a gorgeous beach - great for swimming - where we have a choice of nice beachside restaurants.

St Barts

St Barts is a very chic French island and has a nice anchorage where we usually have encounters with large Green Sea Turtles

From Saint Barts its a broad reach 4-5 hours in nice Caribbean tradewinds to the rarely visited island of Sint Eustatius. This Dutch Island has a nice anchorage and a sweet little village overlooking the harbour.

Saba Caribbean Gem

Saba is a rare gem of the Caribbean and one of our favourite stops. It is preserved with very itttle development and has a dramatic arrival from sea. If the weather suits we can anchor here and visit ashore to explore the high rainforest and 2 cute villages.

Saba Rainforest

After a tour of Saba we can set sail at sunset for an overnight passage to the British Virgin Islands. Leaving from Saba gives us the opportunity for a passage with the wind aft of the beam and a great introduction to night sailing.

British Virgin Islands Sailing

With the protected Fraincis Drake Channel we can finish up the cruise with some lovely protected sailing.

Building Skills and Additional Activities
As usual, we encourage our guests to participate as much or as little as they'd like with the operation and sailing of the boat. Note we will make at least one overnight passage on this trip so we call this an intermediate leg.

We will help anyone wanting to build their skills sailing, anchoring, cruise planning, navigation, weather forecasting picking up a mooring and docking during the voyage.

On this trip we will also be offering training in the use of a sextant for those interested.
