Sailing in Antigua
For a 1-week yacht charter holiday there’s plenty of idyllic anchorages around Antigua to keep you busy.
On a 10-day yacht charter you could include the magical island of Barbuda in your sailing itinerary. Barbuda is a 30 mile easy reach away, remote and incredibly beautiful. Along the leeward shore, 11 miles of beach are littered with tiny shells that give it a luminous pink glow. See turtles basking in the shallows while you swim in crystal clear water.
For a 2 week sailing holiday more experienced skippers can plan a sailing itinerary to include St Kitts & Nevis (45nm) or Guadeloupe (48nm). One way yacht charters to St Martin are also available at extra cost, visiting St Kitts & Nevis and St Barts, each island as different as the last.
Best time to travel to sail in Antigua is from November to June,with temperatures around 30oC. Constant warm tradewinds blowing East-Northeast from 15 to 25 knots provide excellent sailing during the winter months.
