7nts Sailing, 7nts Windsurfing/Kitesurfing St Lucia & Grenadines
This tour begins in Vieux Fort, in the southern part of St Lucia for a week of windsurfing and kitesurfing. The second week is spent on a chartered yacht with a skipper, and the option of more crew, for a trip south to the outstandingly beautiful Grenadines, and eventually back to St Lucia.
Please note that due to the hurricane season, this tour will not run throughout september.
Day 1-6: Coconut Bay Resort
Land in St Lucia after an overnight flight from the UK. From the airport you will be transferred the short distance to the Coconut Bay Resort where you will spend the next 7 nights. This accommodation has two wings, a family friendly one, and a couple orientated one, offering something for everyone. This is also where our partner kitesurf and windsurf centre is located.
After a week in Vieux Fort enjoying the wind, a private driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you the 80 minute journey to Marigot Bay, further north in the island, where your yacht will be waiting along with our ground agents to greet you. After enjoying a refreshing lunch at one of the many restaurants near the marina, you will embark on the first leg of your adventure with a short passage along the island’s western shore. Pick up a mooring north of Petit Piton, and head ashore to explore the natural wonders of the area, which include waterfalls and sulfur springs.
Day 8: Bequia-Admiralty Bay
The Pitons to Bequia – 55 nm
Awaken early to get under way for day two of your St. Lucia itinerary. Sail south with a fair wind off the beam across open waters to the high, rugged island of St. Vincent. Many world cruisers say this part of the Caribbean is the best of the entire region. Blue Lagoon, at the south end of St. Vincent, is an excellent harbor; many sailors stop there en route to Bequia from St. Lucia. Otherwise, keep sailing the remaining distance to Admiralty Bay, Bequia’s main harbor.
Day 9: Visiting Mustique
Bequia to Mustique – 14 nm
A cruise in the Grenadines wouldn’t be complete without stopping at this exclusive, privately owned island, home to approximately 90 sprawling mansions. Mustique is special because it’s so unspoiled. Sailors are welcome to hike and bike the roads and trails, alternatively touring by taxi is another option. You can pick up a mooring in Britannia Bay, then go ashore to explore. Stop by Basil’s Bar, one of the most famous in the Caribbean, for dinner and drinks in an informal setting. More luxurious dining is also widely available.
Day 10: Going to Tobago Cays
Mustique to Tobago Cays – 18 nm
A fast passage to the southwest will take you from the highly civilized and tasteful ambience of unspoiled Mustique to Tobago Cays Marine Park. These five uninhabited isles are among the most beautiful in the Grenadines and are seemingly made for sailors who love snorkeling, scuba diving, beach combing, or simply relaxing in the cockpit. Horseshoe Reef hems in the Cays, providing protection from the trade wind swells. All manner of sea life is present, including sea turtles.
Day 11: Transfert to Mayreau
Tobago Cays to Mayreau – 4 nm
It’s only an hour or less to the next recommended anchorage, Mayreau’s Salt Whistle Bay. Palm Island is a wonderful spot to drop the hook and enjoy lunch ashore. Casuarina Beach is beautiful and has a pleasant beachside restaurant. A major yachting center in the southern Grenadines, Clifton Harbour on nearby Union Island one of Planets most desireable kitesurf destinations, with a world class kitesurf centre on land, offering lessons, rental, and photo shoots. The Island hums with activity and has plenty of shops and restaurants. Anchor for the night a few miles north in Salt Whistle Bay and enjoy dinner at the Salt Whistle Bay Club.
Day 12 - 13: Bequia and Piton again
Mayreau to Bequia – 24 nm
It’s time to make the miles north back to Bequia’s Admiralty Bay. Hike or take a taxi to the top of Mount Pleasant, check out the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, visit the Bequia Maritime Museum, window shop, or dine ashore at one of the many restaurants, ranging from casual to the more upscale. An alternative well worth considering is beautiful Friendship Bay, on the south side of the island. It’s quiet, the white-sand beach is beautiful, and the anchorage is well protected from northerly swells.
Bequia to The Pitons – 53 nm
Getting under way early for the passage north past St. Vincent and back to St. Lucia will provide the best of both worlds, a fun open-water sail with time to enjoy the beauty of the Pitons and the town of Soufriére.
You will spend one more night in St Lucia, before returning to the UK.
Day 14: Back to UK
On the last day you will be driven back to the airport, from where you will return to the UK.
