"The Windward and Leeward islands form the eastern border of the Caribbean Sea. Stretching from Grenada to Martinique, the Windwards got their name because British ships sailing from other colonies frequently had to beat the weather to reach them. The northern islands of the archipelago are more to leeward, so the British called them the Leeward Islands. They begin in Dominica, just above Martinique, and arc gently northwest for a bit under 150 miles to include Guadeloupe, Antigua, Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Barts, Anguilla, and many others. They end near St. Martin 150 miles east of Puerto Rico. These waters are an ideal location for staging a St. Martin sailing vacation to a variety of destinations throughout the Leeward chain. Whether the island is British, Dutch, French, or independent, each has unique characteristics ranging from the upscale and trendy to the laid-back and isolated. Some islands are mountainous remnants of ancient volcanoes carpeted with lush rain forests. Others are low-lying, flat, and rimmed with incredible white-sand beaches and coral reefs teeming with sea life made to order for an unforgettable St. Martin yacht charter." -Tui

During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style. Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes that you can get wet is recommended.
Simpson Bay Lagoon
Leave from Simpson Bay Lagoon which is a beautiful big estuary housing boats from all over in one of the most protected anchorages around. Take a short sail to Marigot – capital of the French side and become familiar with your yacht. Spend your first night at anchor in Marigot where you can browse the world famous Creole market and enjoy a lively evening atmosphere.
Road Bay, Anguilla
Depart Marigot and escape to the beautiful island of Anguilla ( 3 hours sail). Going ashore in Road Bay you can wander the sandy streets between beach bars and visit the historic salt pond that formally employed almost everyone on the island. Anguilla is laid back and buetiful so let yourself slip into the pace of island life.
Prickly Pear Cays
It’s about 5 nautical miles from Road Bay out to Prickly Pear Cays, part of Anguilla’s marine park. These tiny islands are a good lunch stop in settled weather for a swim or snorkeling on the reef. We anchor off the south side of East Prickly Pear at the west end of the cay. Seabirds nest in the craggy cliffs, a pristine white-sand beach fringes the cay, and the colors of the ocean are dazzling. Take the dinghy ashore to the north side of the island, enjoy a stroll, and listen to the “whistling rocks” as they seem to sigh with the rhythmic wash of the gentle waves. Another five nautical miles back to the main island will take you to scenic Crocus Bay, just north of Road Bay, where we will anchor for the night.
From Anguilla’s Crocus Bay, we set a course to take you along the north coast of the island on a downwind sail, and head up once we are past Blowing Rocks for the sail east to St. Martin. Our destination is Grand Case. Every Tuesday night between jan 21st and march 30th is a “harmony festival” and the main street is closed and filled with people and good food. Sit down for a nice dinner and watch the people parade by or join the fray and sample amazing street food as you go.
Once we leave Grand Case we will head southward from St. Martin to one of the prettiest locales in the northern Leewards, St. Barts, which is officially known as St. Barthemey. On the way, we will stop for lunch and some snorkeling at the privately owned Ile Fourchue, a small, hilly isle off the coast of St. Barts. In Gustavia we’ll clear customs into our 4th country in five days and go ashore to a little Paris in the Leeward Islands. Gustavia has proper french markets with fresh baked pastries and bread.
After morning coffee in Gustavia we’ll sail to Ile Fourchue marine park where we snorkle and ounge on the beach all day, watch a stunning sunset over the ocean with dinner, and spend the night surrounded by nature at anchor.
Simpson Bay Lagoon
Take an early start from Ile Fourche and sail down to Simpson Bay to catch the bridge into the lagoon the last morning of sailing will be take us through the waters of a marine park that is teeming with life and offers the possibility of seeing whales and dolphins as well as many seabirds and turtle species.
