YOUR SAILING AREA

Lesser Antilles, Caribbean

The starting point for this trip is the port of Pointe a Pitre in Guadeloupe.  Enjoy a good mix of short sailing distances combined with exploring ashore and swimming stops in the afternoon and evening. Our destination is Antigua with its attractive mixture of beaches, nature, culture, history, shopping opportunities and delicious cuisine is a real “treasure island”.

.

Begin in the butterfly shaped island of Guadeloupe, home to beautiful long stretches of beach, sugarcane fields and the Parc National de la Guadeloupe encompassing the beautiful Carbet Falls and the volcano of La Grande Soufrière. Guadeloupe has smaller islands that include Marie-Galante and La Désirade.

The island of Dominica is mountainous and covered in rainforest reserves teeming with wonderful wildlife spotting opportunities. The National Park is home to the volcanically heated, steam-covered Boiling Lake, hot springs and the 65m-tall Trafalgar Falls – don’t forget your swimsuit! Wander the pretty streets of the capital of Dominica, Roseau, visit the beautiful botanical gardens and immerse yourself in the relaxed Caribbean culture.

Your final destination is the island of Antigua, which is the mainland of the country of Antigua and Barbuda. Surrounded by turquoise waters, miles of coral reefs, stretches of sandy beaches and sheltered bays, this island is great for snorkelling and swimming and it the perfect way to end your Caribbean sailing adventure.

Wildlife in the Caribbean

Spot graceful Green and Loggerhead Sea Turtles gliding effortlessly through the water and Bottlenose Dolphins swimming with the wake of the bow. Whales also frequent the Caribbean sea, with the warm water providing the perfect breeding grounds at this time of year for the humpback whale. Birdlife in the Caribbean is an incredibly beautiful sight. Keep your binoculars at the ready to spot these colourful delights. With species only native to the Caribbean, these are once in a lifetime encounters!

Life on board

The beauty of being on a ship in these breathtaking islands is that we can take you to the unspoilt, authentic Caribbean, away from the busy resorts and beaches. Experience true Caribbean culture, from small fishing villages to lively, colourful carnivals. The crew will aim to give you time to explore the islands as you wish, finding harbours to berth at and secluded bays to anchor in. Feel the sand between your toes, soak up the wonderfully colourful culture, snorkel with the fantastic marine life or simply kick back and relax on the beach.

There is no fixed itinerary for your sailing holiday, Eye of the Wind will need to sail where the wind and weather take her. The Skipper will have a better idea of the holiday plan as you board and will give a briefing on your first evening. Rest assured where ever you sail in this beautiful part of the world you won’t be disappointed and the skipper is always happy to take guest wishes into consideration.

Wonderful nature and wildlife, sailing adventures, and the culture of the colourful Caribbean islands turn this trip into a unique holiday experience. Enjoy the azure ocean, palm beaches and the incomparable flair of the “Caribbean way of life”.

Eye of the Wind

Guest berths: 16 Rig: Brig

With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.

This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.

Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.

Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 12 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
