Sailing in the Leeward Islands:
St. Martin, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Dominica: a dream island string of pearls
The Leeward Islands are a dreamlike sailing territory that stretches from Anguilla in the north to St. Martin, Antigua, Guadeloupe and Dominica. Long lays between the islands during your charter sailing trip can be associated with swimming breaks at attractive mooring bays.
Anguilla with its beaches and coral reefs invites you to swim and snorkel. St. Martin is attractive with its own special charm. To this very day, the island is still half French and half Dutch.
St. Barths has duty-free status and you will be able to discover it when your sailing trip takes you south. The journey then continues to the volcanic islands of Saba, Statia, St. Kitts and Nevis.
According to its own advertising, Antigua is able to offer 365 beaches. Guadeloupe, as a French overseas departement is somewhat more sophisticated, whilst you will come across the original Caribbean way of life and unspoiled tropical nature on Dominica.
Wind and sailing conditions in the Leeward Islands: constant trade winds. Southeasterly in the summer at 3-4 on the Beaufort scale and northeasterly in the winter at 4-6 on the Beaufort scale.
