Windward Island Yacht Charters
From north to south, French Martinique is, the largest of the Windward Islands. Charming St. Pierre lies at the foot of Mt. Pelee volcano. The story of the eruption that killed all 30,000 residents in 1902 (except for one very lucky prisoner in the local jail) is legendary. Our trips to the bustling City of Fort de France were always a gastronomic feast. Start your journey down the Rue Victor Hugo and don’t forget to stop for a fresh croissant or refreshing chilled glass of white wine. C’est magnifique!
St. Lucia has many surprises, including the spectacularly beautiful (and elusive) Marigot Bay. So well hidden, a British Admiral is said to have hidden his fleet here from the pursing French. The crews tied palm fronds in the rigging. From the sea, this looked like just another empty inlet! But the most spectacular sight is sailing south to the towering Pitons, 2 mountains rising up from the sea. Visit the nearby hot springs, or take a taxi into the hills to enjoy the views with a sunset punch in hand.
Certainly the most popular place to charter in the Windward Island are The Grenadines. Board your crewed yacht charter in St. Vincent and sail south for Bequia, chic Mustique, Canouan, the gorgeous Tobago Cays, Union and Palm Islands, Petit St. Vincent and Petit Martinique. Caribbean yacht charters in the Windwards are magical. This cruising area is the closest thing to sailing in the Virgin Islands, with shorter distances between your destinations. If you have the time, charter your yacht for 10 days, and end your journey in Grenada, the Spice Island.
