  About Caribbean Singles Sailing

An odyssey of thirteen islands in twelve days and almost as many countries visited! Make no mistake, this is full on sailing visiting most of the Windward & Leeward islands in the Caribbean!

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 between Grenada and St Martin and the chance to practice and hone your skippering and passage planning skills along the way?

Our 12 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 most 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.

Need a more leisurely precursor? Why not combine your stay with our Beginners & Improvers week around Grenada, or arrive a few days earlier or leave a little later and have extra time enjoying quiet anchorages.
