Sailing-Classics Caribbean Voyage

Sint Maarten/St. Martin British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are an island paradise along the Sir Francis Drake Channel, which is protected by the Atlantic swell. The variety of islands is unique, from the granite rocks on Virgin Gorda to Richard Branson’s private island Peter Island or Norman Island, which was also the inspiration for Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. Island hopping at it’s best.

Arrival & Departure

St. Martin can be reached almost daily via AirFrance via Paris (without changing airports) or via KLM via Amsterdam. From there you can take the local island hopper to Tortola (Beef Island) or sail on board the RHEA via Anguilla and Dog Island to the BVI’s or back.

WIND & Weather

During the hurricane-free period from December to May, the north-east trade winds offer excellent and consistent sailing conditions with 4-6 Beaufort. The temperatures are usually tropically warm with occasional short rain showers (water 24-26°C / air 24-30°C).

Highlights

From the tropical main island of Tortola to the neighboring island of Jost van Dyke and the coral island of Anegada, where you can anchor in turquoise waters with no view of land, this island world is unique.

You can try the “Painkiller”, the national cocktail of the BVIs, in the famous bars “Soggy Dollar” & “Foxy’s” on Jost van Dyke, for example. “Soggy” refers to the wet dollar, as these bars used to only be accessible by swimming from the yacht.

The Costa Smeralda Yacht Club branch on Virgin Gorda is one of the most exclusive yachting venues in the New World.
