About The Event

A 10 day trip around the beautiful islands of Dominica and Martinique.

If you are looking for an tropical sailing escape full of Caribbean sunshine and warmth - look no further! Join us for a relaxed start to your holiday in St Lucia from where we set sail on an inter-island passage to French Martinique. We'll take time here to anchor in picturesque bays, moor up in lovely harbours and enjoy the local French style and culture that this Caribbean island has to offer. After a few days we set sail on another short passage to Dominica - the emerald island of the Caribbean with its  waterfalls and lush green mountainsides.  If we're lucky, we may even spot a few dolphins as they are fairly common around the coast of Dominica! On the return trip you can hone the sailing skills you have been building over your holiday or just enjoy being out under Caribbean skies.

Your skipper on this holiday is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge, either to build your general sailing skills or to concentrate on particular areas you wish to practice! You can be as involved as you wish, whether taking the helm, changing a sail, pulling on a few sheets or simply sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere! Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.

Pre-Course Requirements

As these trips will take us out to sea between the islands there will be occasions when the weather and sea state can be a little unsettled. Therefore we recommend having at least some sailing experience in advance of undertaking this trip. Open to competent crew and up!

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
