The Bucket Regatta: St Maarten – Barbados

The Bucket Regatta: St Maarten – Barbados

From EUR €5,795


The British Virgin Islands – a beautiful sailing destination
The British Virgin Islands, with their white-sand beaches, coral reefs and friendly beach bars, are made up of 60 islands and reefs. When cruising along the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the Sea Cloud ii calls at two of its stunning natural beauty spots. The tiny islands dotted in the water and warm, gentle breezes make this waterway – named after the famous seafarer – a veritable paradise for sailors.

Regatta on the jet-set island of St Barths
The fact that St Barths can only be reached by small aircraft often attracts international celebrities who come to enjoy relaxing days on the tranquil beaches or head to the capital of Gustavia. A highlight for sports fans is the Bucket Regatta, a remarkable sailing event which is held in March every year and sees 30 stylish superyachts compete against one another.

Snorkellers’ paradise in the Tobago Cays
For many, life under water is a fascinating world – one that becomes even more magical the closer you get. The Tobago Cays’ Horseshoe Reef is such a place. This horseshoe-shaped coral reef encloses four small islands that glow in rich shades of green. The sea, in contrast, embraces turquoise, emerald and every shade of blue.

A lecturer accompanies the trip
