Chartering a Sailing Yacht in the Caribbean Sea
Forget about legends of pirates, rum and colonies, the Caribbean is a tropical paradise where people flock in search sunshine and crystal clear waters. And with over 7000 islands covering nearly 4000km it's safe to say they have where to choose from.
With all that water and all those islands, The Caribbean is a yacht charter paradise, with destinations such as Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola which form the Greater Antilles and the Lesser Antilles which are subdivided into the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands.
From coral islands to volcanic-based ones, the region offers a multitude of Caribbean yacht charter holidays itineraries and possibilities. Since the climate has been described as "perpetual spring" due mainly to the easterly trade winds that ensure lovely temperatures throughout the year, you can always head out for a sailing trip here. However, on rare occasion between June and November there is the possibility of hurricanes.
On land, the vegetation is lush and tropical, seemingly perfectly blended with the sandy beaches to create that tropical paradise image coveted by so many sailors from all over the world. Here you can find also endless plantations which have been growing here since colonial times which provide the locals with an important source of income outside of tourism.
Another thing that draws in tourists to the yacht charter Caribbean is the history and the many exotic civilizations on the islands that blend some of the most famous European countries such as the British, the French or the Spanish.
After most of these island-nations became independent, they turned to massive tourism in order to ensure a steady income, which is good news for the visitors because here skippers can find a good infrastructure for pleasure sailing that can satisfy even the most demanding crew.
The sailing conditions here are somewhat different than from the ones of coastal sailing in the Mediterranean. First off there are tidal currents but their range does not exceed 12 inches and there is plenty of line-of-sight sailing between the smaller islands, with wind conditions being as close to predictable as clockwork.
