Tropical island bliss

Composed of over 5,000 islands, reefs and cays and combining easy line-of-sight sailing and challenging open water thrills, the Caribbean is a veritable sailor’s playground. And with secluded white-sand beaches studded with coconut palms, picture-perfect harbours alive with splashes of island colour and isolated coral reefs framed by a backdrop of mesmerising blue, you’ll be spoilt for places to play.

From the 700 islands of the Bahamas to the 365 beaches of Antigua; the lush, tropical island of St. Lucia to the European flair of St. Martin; the shipwreck dive sites of Tortola to the exotic jungle beauty of Belize, sail the Caribbean and realise your nautical dreams.
