Competition now closed!

Our competition in partnership with Wired for Adventure has now closed.

If you’d like to experience the real ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, why not take a look at historic brigantine Florette’s sailing schedule. Immerse yourself in the authentic Caribbean way of life, enjoy the finest local cuisine and explore islands far from the beaten track.

Dive into secluded bays with crystal clear waters, snorkel amidst vibrant coral reefs, and relax on white sand beaches stretching for miles. Hike through volcanic islands, exploring luscious rainforests and watching for wildlife along the way.  This active sailing adventure is the perfect mix of traditional life at sea and time spent ashore whilst being the ideal way to experience a more sustainable holiday in the Caribbean, travelling with the power of the wind.  Get stuck in with the crew and hoist the sails, or simply enjoy the slower pace of life at sea. There’s no sailing experience required – just a taste for adventure!
