On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage.
Choosing to sail on board Blue Clipper in the Caribbean is something special. Unlike huge cruise ships, Blue Clipper is small enough to get into the remote and isolated islands and keep away from the busy crowds from the Tall Ships. With only 12 guests on board you can expect a personal and intimate service, where great attention is paid to making sure your voyage exceeds your expectations.
The Leeward islands, extending from Anguiilla in the North to Dominica in the south are some of the world’s most paradisical islands and sought after Catibbean desitnations. They are the northern islands of the Lesser antilles chain, located where the north-eastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean.
At the top of the chain of islands is Anguilla, one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets. It is one of the smallest islands although not overly populated. The white-sandy beaches here are pristine and the lanscape is virtually untouched making it a perfect escape from the droves of sun-loving tourists.
Like Anguilla, the Island of St martin (St Maarten) is small in size. It is in fact one of the smllest islands to be divided by two nations, the French and the Dutch. Although the island falls under these two governemtns, the great influence of European style mixed with Caribbean tradtions make St Martin a truly unique destination.
The tiny island of St Barts, Saba and St Eustatius are also a fantastic area for sailing, with small secluded anchorages and serene coves to relax in.
South of Saba, lie the beautiful islands of St Kitts, Nevis, Montesarrat and Barbuda. Each, a tropical haven with deserted beaches, stunning coral reefs and unspoiled landscapes.
Other islands to explore include Antigua, Guadeloupe and Dominica.
