Sailing conditions

The average temperature is 26°C and rainfall totals an average of 1143 mm yearly. Visibility is generally excellent and on very clear days you can see the islands of Saba, St Eustatius (Statia), St Christopher (St Kitts) and even Nevis, some 60 miles to the southeast. Fog is unheard of but occasionally haze, especially from August to October, can reduce visibility to 15 miles or so. The winter months offer exciting and challenging sailing, the summer is more laid-back. The tidal range is approximately 45 cm and there are westerly directional currents. This is a destination for confident sailors with a reasonable level of experience.
