Windward Islands Yacht Charter

Your Guide to Yacht Charter in the Windward Islands

A crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean would not be complete without a visit to the Windward Islands. Located on the southern end of the Caribbean chain, the Windward Islands are the Caribbean's best-kept yacht charter secret. These lush and richly tropical volcanic islands are a little piece of France, floating amongst the palm lined sandy beaches and misty rain forests, of the Caribbean. The Windward Islands yacht charter area are so named due to being on the windier and wetter side of the Lesser Antilles and consist of Martinique, Saint Lucia, Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada Trinidad and Tobago. Together all the islands make up the group of Caribbean islands known as the Lesser Antilles.

This jewel area of the Caribbean hosts yachting year-round, with a rainy season from July through October. From its distinctive cuisine to its language, The Windward Islands exude the ambiance of Paris with the warmth, friendliness and spice of the West Indies.

As with most of the Caribbean, The Windward Islands yacht charter season runs from November through to July. The Caribbean's primary high season is from mid-December to March, when the winter escapees from North America and Europe arrive in their greatest numbers. The hurricane season is from late July to early October. Although hurricanes are generally rare, this is still the least expensive time for chartering in the Caribbean and there are some really good deals available - however, as well as running the risk of storms, this time of year also tends to be associated with lighter (or non existent) winds.
