We meet on the 14th of March in Port de Plaisance, Sint Maarten on board Montana.
We will start our trip in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten. During a visit to “Maho Beach”, we can observe the landing aircraft at one of the most spectacular airports in the world. In the evening we can go to Soggy Dollar to have a party or to meet some sailors in Lagoonies.
To get familiar with Montana our first tack leads us to St. Barth. Here we can drink cocktails with the beautiful and rich or go shopping in the chic boutiques of the island. From here we have several options for our further routing. After checking the wind forecast, we can decide which island we are heading for next.
Saba, “the unspoiled Queen”, with its great snorkelling spots and impressive rainforest and further the pristine St.Kitts and Nevis. Also, a side trip to Montserrat is possible, where the impact of the volcanic eruption from 1995-1997 is still visible. The last tack brings us to Antigua, our destination. There we visit the historic Nelson’s Dockyard before our trip comes to an end with a “Dark and Stormy” in Skullduggery.
On our holiday trips, we can alter the stops on our trips according to the wishes of our guests.
