Sailing the BVI
Sailing used to be just for pirates, the super rich, or people that were very adventurous. Today with improved hull design, modern technology, and competitive yacht rentals, sailing adventures are for families, couples, groups and singles.........and you don't have to be super rich or be a pirate!. Below are 5 reasons we believe you need to sail, relax and explore with CaribeSail.
1: It's the ultimate hassle-free adventure
No Taxis, no deadlines, no hotel to come back to every night, no need to search for food, a drink ready any time...........the sun is your compass, the coast line is your chart and the wind is your guide!
2: All non-stop chillaxing adventure
The best part is its totally up to you! CaribeSail sailing adventures are perfect whether you prefer to relax and watch your crew do all the work while you sip a tropical concoction or be a modern day pirate and explore remote islands and coves in search of buried treasure.
3: Live the high life
Life is about the journey not the destination, when sailing with CaribeSail its all about the journey and not the destination. How many vacations are about getting to the destination, rushing to catch flights, staying on a schedule, crowds of people, and frequent stress-inducing situations. Sailing adventures are completely opposite. You will constantly feel a gentle breeze cooling your bronze, sun-kissed body as you float over the azure blue ocean, before dropping anchor and watching the sun slip over the horizon. You get the idea!
4:Travel sickness resistant sailing
Sailing a catamaran (multi-hull) brings stability and space and reduces the pitch and awe experienced when sailing traditional cruisers (mono-hulls). Not to mention that places such as the BVI provide smooth waters, gentle breezes, and you never loose sight of land. Open water can be a challenge and if this does not float your boat there are more sedate options. You can always choose where you want to stop, drop anchor, get off the boat, go ashore, and put those toes in the sand!
5: Well within your budget
With competitive yacht charter prices, cheap airfares and great sailing destinations, there has never been a better time to take a sailing adventure. Most that explore this option quickly discover that sailing adventures are not just for the wealthy. In fact most sailing adventures are more affordable than staying at a resort when you consider all the additional expenses you will incur. CaribeSail makes sailing affordable for anyone that has a thirst for adventure and a pair of sunglasses!

St Vincent and the Grenadines ? It is definitely worth the effort to get there, because once there, you will truly experience Caribbean sailing the way it should be!
It is starkly contrasted with sailing the BVI - In the Grenadines be prepared to spend time sailing and less time drinking ashore, although drinking ashore proved to be an experience like none other! The Grenadines is like going back in time - lets say to the 1800's and in some cases you may feel that you have ended up in Heaven!
To get to the St. Vincent we recommend flying to Barbados first, and if you budget allows spend a few days on this amazing island. Fly to St. Vincent where you can charter your vessel. We selected TMM, a second tier bareboat charter company with fleets in the BVI and Belieze. They have affordable rates and offer a 10% discount to repeat customers, even from the BVI. TMM is locally owned and they hold their own. They are easy to work with and will work with you to get things coordinated on your trip. Warning, their fleet is older in the Grenadines compared to the BVI so don't expect all the bells and whistles found on modern sailing yachts. Our boat had some issues as all do, but on the last day we lost our steering. Thanks for the skill of our captain to quickly start the engines, turn into the wind, drop the sails and use the emergency tiller! The incident was a freak, a pulley pulled lose below and wedged between the steering cable causing incredible stress as we turned up a little into the wind. Despite this issue on the last day, our 43 foot Belieze, the Ameryliss was the Bomb!
I will tell you about the trip on my next post!!
