A sailing holiday in the Caribbean is a perfect vacation but why not add a few days ashore in a hotel afterwards for a "Sail and Stay" holiday. Some of your crew may want to try their hand at watersports that are easier to arrange at a hotel rather than from your yacht, such as dinghy sailing, windsurfing or diving. Some of your crew may want time to just relax by the pool, on the beach or in the hotel spa. If you are flying to the BVI via Antigua you could stay a few days in Antigua on the way home to relax by the beach of a different island.
Keep everyone happy with a Sail & Stay Caribbean Holiday!
We sent Clive Loughlin of Sailing Today magazine on a Sail and Stay Holiday in the BVI combining a bareboat charter of a Beneteau 323 from Nanny Cay Marina and a land-based stay at the super Bitter End Yacht Club. Read his article here>>
