Read what our client’s have to say. We don’t write it, they do! We are only as good as our recent reviews! These are since December 23rd 2018
We have superb sailing grounds on the west coast of Antigua where we are in the lee of the north east trade winds with relatively calm and beautiful blue waters. We are just a few nautical miles from the Atlantic Ocean where the more adventurous can experience some ocean sailing conditions!
