Windward Islands Yacht Charters

Caribbean Beaches

Windward Islands Yacht Charters. The Windward Islands are located on the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea and form the southeastern boundary between the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Windward group includes the islands of Barbados, MartiniqueSt. LuciaSt. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada with Carriacou, Petit Martinique, and the country of Trinidad and Tobago. As a matter of fact, this island group is named because they are more windward when crossing the Atlantic than the Leeward Islands.

Windward Islands | Cultural Heritage

The countries of Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad, and Tobago, and St. Lucia were more recently part of the British Colonies. While, Martinique remains part of France along with Guadeloupe, St. Martin, and St. Barths in the Leeward islands group. Interestingly, St. Lucia has a strong French influence and many of the locals still speak creole which is a mix of English and French.

What’s it like to sail the Windwards?

Windward Islands yacht charters tend to be more enjoyable for the experienced sailor. Except in the northern and southern Grenadines within St. Vincent and The Grenadines, the sailing distances are longer compared to the Virgin Islands.

Sea conditions can be challenging depending on the time of the year. There are some protected anchorages. It is an opportunity to experience different cultures within a small area as each country and sometimes islands have their uniqueness. The beautiful Caribbean music, waters, breeze/wind, beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving are the same.  The local cuisines are all very special with their Indian, Amerindian, African, French, English influences.

We recommend eight to ten days for a charter when sailing the Grenadines. In addition, sailing from the north like from St. Vincent to Grenada or Union Island in St. Vincent and The Grenadines is more comfortable depending on the time of the year as it would be downwind.
