Eastern Caribbean Cruising in Luxury Catamaran
UPDATED 21 FEB 2024
After crossing the Atlantic we are now slowly cruising north from Grenada where and when the wind takes us. Our ultimate destination is Cuba before we return south for the hurricane season.
There is now availability from Antigua from 20 March. Long term crew are preferable although short term crew will be considered on a hop-on hop-off basis.
My passages are for people who want to improve their sailing skills in a safe and sound vessel. I am not offering a sailing vacation charter, although fun is part of the reason I do this. You are committed to learning on the go, no seasickness, no medical issues, no vegans or special diet requirements or allergies to foods.
Jalemar is a well equipped luxury Fountaine Pajot Elba45 sailing catamaran, Maestro owners version with 3 king-size shared cabins each with its own full en-suite, a well equipped chefs galley, 3 large separate outside socialising areas and a fully enclosed half-fly helm.
