Make Magical Memories Sailing This Winter In The Caribbean
Hopefully, your summer memories are still top of mind and they include great times at the beach, walking along the coast and perhaps even some sailing!
Even though summer is officially over it is definitely still hot, hot, hot here! And we are heading into our fourth charter season next month!
So how about making some magical memories with some winter sailing and sun in the Caribbean?
In the last three years we have had 36 amazing charters, welcomed over 120 guests, sailed over 10,000 NM and cooked almost 850 meals on Nemo!
We can’t wait to set off again in November for another fabulous season. You can find out more about what we get up to below, or we can tell you all about it when you join us sailing in paradise!
And speaking of paradise, we have written a guide about sailing in St Vincent & The Grenadines. You can download it here.
Six Weeks On The Hard
We stayed in Grenada this summer to charter with family and work on Nemo and Dory. Neil spent 4 weeks scraping, sanding and polishing Nemo’s hull. It was a bit of a slog, but who do you think looks more ripped now, Neil or Nemo ??
We also added solar panels and a new Bimini to house them. Dory got new tubes – she looks brand new! And we have done the usual annual maintenance including safety inspections for our lifejackets and life raft. It was a busy summer, but worth it. We will be posting a blog on all the learnings, as there were a few, so keep an eye out for that soon.
Amazing Guests Make Big Impact
2018-19 was our first season supporting Pack for a Purpose and we would like to thank all our guests who spared space to make a big impact. #thankyou!
Our guests brought 68lb or 31kg of items for projects in Bequia and Dominica. This year we are also supporting projects in Grenada and the BVI.
If you are sailing with us or even travelling elsewhere, visit Pack for a Purpose and see if your destination has a project in need of support.
Sailing Trip Availability
Nemo would love to welcome you on board. So which sailing trips still have cabins available? 13 charters already have cabins booked, and 5 charters are fully booked.
You can see a summary of this season’s cabin availability on this blog. It gets updated whenever there is a booking. We have 1 cabin left for a solo traveller on our Christmas trip around the Grenadines. Or check out all our charters on our Trips Page.
Blog & Video Highlights
Blog: Neil and Sam: The BlueFoot Travel Team: If you are going to join us on a charter you should know a bit about us before you come! Get a little insight with this intro.
Blog: Galley Cooking in the Caribbean: Find out how Sam whips up a storm in the galley for our charters!
Finally, we couldn’t leave you without a short video of Nemo sailing at sunset. Sometimes the sailing is fast and sometimes it is slow and leisurely on Nemo! Either way, it is always great fun.
That’s all we have for now. Thanks for taking the time to read our update. Please get in touch if you have any questions at all.
Fair winds and have a great weekend!
