Immerse yourself into life at sea on traditional tall ship Florette as she sails from the Malaga in Spain over to the Canary Islands them on to the Caribbean island of Barbados. Spend Christmas in the tropical sunshine as you sail onward to the Grenadines and Martinique.

An adventure sailing holiday across an ocean is certainly one that leaves life-long memories. Using the northeasterly trade winds above the equator to fill the sails with thousands of miles to cover, this sailing adventure is not for the faint hearted but perfect for the avid adventurer!

Leaving from Malaga in Spain you will cross to Tenerife in the Canary Islands. From here you will sail across the Atlantic Ocean to reach the Caribbean island of Barbados. The voyage will take 43 days which includes 5 days in port in Tenerife, where you can stay on board with breakfast each day, and there are buffer days included in this to make best use of the wind. If you arrive to Barbados early, you’ll be able to use the boat as your base as you find your land legs again and explore ashore. 

Once you arrive in Barbados there will be a quick stop before the onward sail to explore St Vincent & the Grenadines and the island of Martinique. Celebrate Christmas and New Years Eve island style along the way! Captain Ron and his family will make sure you have a magical festive season. If you would like friends of family to fly out and meet you to spend Christmas in the Caribbean, we can offer them a discount on their berth.
