Facts about the Caribbean

High volcanic islands with evergreen rainforests, flat coral islands, long white sandy beaches lined with palm trees, turquoise water, colorful wooden houses in confectioner style and the special joie de vivre of the locals – the Caribbean is one of the most charming destinations of all. Sailors appreciate the steady trade winds during the hurricane-free period from December to May. There is hardly a sailing area with such reliable wind conditions.

Weather in the Caribbean

In the Caribbean, the year is divided into a dry period and a rainy period. Therefore, the best time for your sailing vacation is from winter to early spring, with constant blowing trade winds and the most hours of sunshine per day.
