This surprisingly little island embodies a dual personality - half French, half Dutch.

St Martin/St Maarten and the surrounding islands of Anguilla and St Barts offer some of the most spectacular sailing in the Caribbean. Experience beautiful anchorages, stunning sunsets and outstanding restaurants. If you are used to sailing in more crowded sailing areas, you will soon discover that St Martin and the surrounding islands offers remote, unspoilt anchorages and total relaxation for that perfect getaway.

Just half a day’s sail away from St Martin is the beautiful island of Anguilla, renowned for its pristine, white sand beaches and the attraction of the rich and famous, and unbeatable for its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. What an ideal place to enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants or a BBQ under the stars! No sailing itinerary would be complete without a trip to St Bart's, known for its wonderful restaurants and picturesque port. Enjoy window shopping and watch the beautiful people as you sip French coffee and enjoy fresh croissants!

    Suggested 1 week sailing itinerary St Martin

    DAY 1 : Anse Marcel Marina

    Embark at Anse Marcel Marina, a full service marina on the northwest coast with a good choice of bars and restaurants.

    DAY 2 : Anguilla (15nm)

    Sail to Anguilla and clear into customs at Road Bay, a charming village set on a lovely beach. Pack your picnic for lunch at Prickly Bay Cays. The snorkeling here is some of the best in the Caribbean.

    DAY 3 : St Barts (32nm)

    The sail south is a fast tack and Tintamarre makes a good midday stop for a beach picnic. St Barts is favoured by the rich and famous but visiting yachtsmen are welcome at Gustavia's bustling harbour front. Some say the cuisine here is the best in the Caribbean, and there's certainly plenty of choice for restaurants.

    DAY 4 : St Barts

    Hire a mini-moke and explore the very pretty island of St Barts. Winding hillside roads afford spectacular views and lead you to excellent beaches.

    DAY 5 : Philipsburg (15nm)

    This convivial port is the capital of St Maarten, the Dutch side of the island, and is popular for its bars, restaurants and duty free shopping.

    DAY 6 : Baie Grande Case (17nm)

    Choose the beach as you sail round the island - you pass several at Simpson Bay and Marigot Bay but the best is Baie Grand Case, a long sweeping beach and the gastronomic centre of St. Martin.

    DAY 7 : Anse Marcel Marina (5nm)

  • Getting There

    Getting There

    Flights to St Martin

    British Airways and Virgin Atlantic have direct flights from Gatwick to Antigua. LIAT operate connecting flights from Antigua to St Martin. Alternatively, fly to St Martin with AirFrance via Paris or KLM via Amsterdam.


    We recommend all clients pre-book transfers from the airport to the base as some flights arrive later in the evening. 


    The Caribbean is a fantastic place to experience a sail and stay holiday. If you are taking a flight via Antigua then why not make the most of your time in the sunshine and combine a yacht charter with a hotel stay in Antigua or even another Caribbean island! 

"We had a wonderful time and would recommend the Islands. Make sure you go to Chatham Bay on Union Island, get Tim and the Bushman to cook you curried Conch - fantastic."

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

The port authorities in Greece are now insisting on one of the following practical certificates: RYA ICC (International Certificate of Competence), RYA Coastal, RYA Yachtmaster, ASA IPC (International Proficiency Certificate) or the IYT (International Yacht Training) Passport. If you hold an RYA Day Skipper or ASA104 it will no longer be accepted and you need to obtain either an ICC or IPC from the corresponding issuing body (RYA or ASA). If your RYA Coastal/Yachtmaster or ASA105/106 certificate is more than 12 years old and does not have a photo ID, then we would also strongly advise applying for an ICC or IPC. If you are a member of the RYA or ASA, you may qualify for a discount or free certificate, otherwise, you will have to pay. The approximate cost is £50. Please use this link - RYA application for the ICC or ASA application for the IPC.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Seychelles, the local authorities require an ICC for the skipper of a bareboat or flotilla yacht charter.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
