Things to Know

WHAT TO BRING ON YOUR SAILING HOLIDAY

Sailing in the Caribbean is a laid-back exercise.  All you need to bring is:

  • shorts & t-shirts
  • swim-wear
  • flip-flops/sandals
  • sunglasses (polarised are best for the sea environment)
  • hat (preferably one that will stay on your head whilst sailing! Bev always wears one, Mike hardly ever does)
  • sun-screen
  • insect repellent if the little buggers like you
  • something to wear to a restaurant
  • walking shoes if you fancy hiking through the rain forest
  • swimming towel

WHAT TO EXPECT ABOARD

Breakfast, included in your holiday, generally consists of fresh fruit and yoghurt, cereals of your choice, bread, ryvita, jam, peanut butter, fruit juice, milk, tea and coffee.

Lunch is also included in your holiday – homemade soup or sandwiches and salad when available.  Bev makes a variety of soups depending on what’s available and includes pumpkin, christophene or cauliflower.  Sandwich fillings will be tuna, sardines, corned beef, eggs or cheese served with salad as available.  We will also sample some local ‘lunches’ – Roti, Saltfish Bake, Rice n Peas.

Supper : We encourage you to eat ashore and sample the delights of the local bar/restaurants.  Some of the places we visit (Bequia, for example) have a whole range of restaurants from up-market to take-aways.  Other places (The Tobago Cays) only have beach BBQ’s or nothing, depending on the time of year.  Don’t worry!  We’ll feed you on the boat as and when necessary, for a small charge.

We can cater for vegetarians and people with special dietary needs.  Please call us to discuss details.

We also encourage you to drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially when we’re sailing and the beautiful breeze contributes to dehydration.

Bed linen is provided as are towels.  You might want to bring extra towels for swimming.

You are welcome to use our fishing gear and masks & snorkels.
