A wonderful trip with all the clichés you would expect from a Caribbean sailing trip and more! From Grenada, we sail north towards Martinique. First we reach the Tobago Cays and Grenadines, an unlikely collection of 100 inhabited and uninhabited islets. This is one of the best sailing areas in the world and we have plenty of time to explore it, a beautiful ship at our disposal and a crew that knows the best spots. But on these trips, passengers are also allowed to suggest ideas. So if there are places on this itinerary that you really want to visit, let us know and we will include them if possible! Of course, we won’t skip the famous horseshoe-shaped reef before sailing to St Vincent.

There is always a pleasant breeze in the Caribbean and the temperatures make the islands a unique place to sail. St Vincent is a volcanic island. La Soufriere is still active and occasionally spews out ash. Another special feature is the small island in the flooded crater. High-quality bananas and cotton grow on the fertile volcanic soil. Mass tourism has largely skipped this island, but the volcanic landscape, rainforests with waterfalls and sandy beaches are well worth a visit.

A few hours away is Saint Lucia. The Caribbean Indians called it the ‘land of iguanas’. The island is relatively densely populated and known for its delicious fruit such as papaya, mango, passion fruit and banana. Saint Lucia can be recognised from afar by its two cone-shaped mountains. Sailing into one of the bays on a Friday, you have a good chance of attending one of the traditional ‘Friday Night Parties’. This is when rum and barbecues are brought out and calypso or reggae music is played.

Our journey ends in Martinique, a French overseas department. It is one of the larger Leeward Islands. There are sugar plantations on Martinique. Good rum is made from most of the produce. A perfect place for the last drinks of this leg!
