Adventure Sailing in the Leeward Islands

Another of our popular sailing odysseys where you get to explore some of the secret Caribbean whilst improving your skills and confidence on board! Make no mistake, this is full on sailing with a packed itinerary and loads to see and do!

If you need to build some miles towards your sailing certificates or you just fancy an adventure, what better way than with some sunny blue water cruising from Antigua to Guadeloupe and Dominica, and then back up to St Martin via Monserrat or St Kitts? You'll also have the chance to practice and hone your skippering and passage planning skills along the way.

Our 14 day itinerary will need to take into account the long range forecasts, and with a prevailing Easterly we should be on a fast beam reach much of the time. IBIS absolutely loves this kind of sailing and gives fast, comfortable passages between the islands. With plenty of stops en route to sample the local food and atmosphere this is a real blue water adventure trip to beat all others!

If you want an idea of what this trip's about, see our Ship's Log of the journey going South and vice versa , and take a look at the video on our homepage.

Want to follow it up with an Ocean passage ? Why not combine your stay with the start of our Atlantic Adventure from St Martin to Bermuda via the BVI's? or arrive a few days earlier and have extra time enjoying quiet anchorages of Antigua.
