Voyage Description

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.

Breathtaking natural beauty combined with old-world charm defines the magical allure of the Eastern Caribbean. With a distinctive fusion of European, African and Latin American influences, this region boasts quaint towns alive with diverse cultures amongst a breathtaking backdrop of swaying palm trees, velveteen sands and turquoise waters accented with rainbow fish. The locals are friendly, the duty-free shops bustling and the cultures fascinating. Soak up the sun, adopt the laid-back island mindset or explore coral reefs teeming with marine life. There is something for everybody on this voyage

Close to millionaires’ playground St Barts, Saint Martin is home to some of the Caribbean’s best beaches, rugged mountains and a deliciously warm tropical climate – average temperature 26 degrees.

At 37 square miles and with a population of around 75,000, it’s smaller than well-trodden holiday destinations such as Barbados and Saint Lucia, but is rich in history, culture and food.

Those who visit the Island may be surprised to find the island is part French and part Dutch and locals were keen to share the legend behind the country’s borders. Allegedly, a representative from each side attempted to define their land by starting at Oysterpond on the east coast, and walking in opposite directions around the island. Wherever they met, a line would be drawn, defining the border. However, the Dutch representative enjoyed a few beverages and kept falling over – so as a result the Dutch area is smaller!

Named originally by Christopher Columbus, who sighted it on St. Martin’s day, French signage calls the island Saint Martin, while the Dutch call it Sint Maarten… but as I travelled around the nickname that united the two was SXM, with the slogan ‘the friendly island’.
