We have exciting news! Starting this fall, our base in the Caribbean will be open throughout the year. Come join us for an incredible sailing getaway on our Lagoon catamarans.
The Caribbean is a unique place, with perfect weather nearly year-round – the sun drenched white-sand beaches, emerald palm trees, and incomparable island vibe are the perfect break from your daily routine. It’s the perfect place to relax!
Our base is nestled in the gorgeous Le Phare Bleu marina, only a few minutes’ drive from the airport and a large shopping mall where you can stock up on delicacies for your journey. Nearby stalls offer fresh, juicy fruit – pomegranates, passion fruit, oranges, breadfruit, ripe watermelons – as well as local vegetables like okra, yams and sweet potatoes.
Grenada lies at the southern tip of the Caribbean and is one of the safest destinations for offseason sailing (i.e. outside the high season from the end of December to the end of March) – for years it has been spared from hurricanes and strong winds. It is the ideal place to experience the real Caribbean. The island is home to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Grand Anse, as well as countless breath-taking waterfalls, some of them hidden deep in the heart of the rainforest. Our experienced team have an intimate knowledge of Grenada and are excited to take you to places you will never forget.
What course to chart? The Yachting Club lets you choose your own destination, although we are always happy to provide guidance. We recommend sailing north, towards Mustique Island. Stop by Carriacou, Union Island, Tobago Cays, Bequia, Union Island and Maryeau. Each of these locations is different, but all are beautiful. Tobago Cays is a desert island archipelago with fantastic snorkelling – you will be surrounded by sea turtles, multicoloured fish and rays – and exquisite meals of lobster, fish and local specialties served on the beach. On Union Island, you can relax at one of its leisurely restaurants before steering your pontoon to catch a perfect sunset from an island so small it fits only a single bar. Naturally, the island is called Happy Island.
