The Caribbean way of life is easy and laid-back, and this is an essential part of the beauty of the destination. It’s almost a given that you’ll be able to enjoy stunning beaches, azure waters and palm trees swaying in the breeze, but along with that comes the joy of warm cultures that really embrace a slower pace of life. Who wouldn’t want to escape their daily reality and experience something totally different? Away from the hustle and bustle (and cold weather!) you can really feel yourself start to unwind.
In order to immerse yourself in total relaxation during a bareboat sailing adventure, it’s naturally nice to be able to enjoy an easy sailing experience as well. Instead of sailing against the currents or winds, visit places that offer short passages and friendly weather patterns.
