The Caribbean island of St. Lucia is one of the jewels of the Windward Islands. With its endless banana plantations, picturesque hamlets and stunning harbours it is a constant reminder of an older Caribbean before tourism really took off.
One of our guests, Andy, recently returned from a week of idyllic sailing, and could not wait to share his experience!
When we got off the plane in Vieux Fort, St Lucia, I immediately noticed the wind. At first I was a little concerned; it was strong and as most of my sailing takes place on the Great Lakes in Canada, the Ocean seemed a bit daunting. We immediately departed to the boat in Rodney Bay, which meant that we got to see some of St Lucia before we boarded. It is a truly beautiful Island with high and low winding roads through rolling banana plantations and old volcanic mountains covered with lush plant life.
Tom and Charles from the Boatbookings.comteam are currently in Paris where they are attending the Salon International Nautique de Paris (Paris International Boat show). A productive first day was spent meeting with our suppliers and inspecting some brand new offerings from the likes of Beneteau , Dufour and Lagoon. The highlight of the show so far for us has to be the brand new Lagoon 39. It’s intelligent design features, maximisation of space and open plan nature make her perfect for families. The Lagoon 39 is our top pick for clients looking to charter a modern, comfortable and luxurious catamaran. If this sounds like your ideal charter yacht then enquirewith one of our experts today!
Stay tuned for more information and our reviews from the show!
