The Moorings kept a fleet for many years at the beautiful Secret Harbor Resort, on the south coast of Grenada. They closed this some time ago, but have just announced they will be opening a base in the new Port Louis Marina. Old timers will remember the somewhat run down Grenada Yacht Services Marina, in the lagoon just south of the main town ...

Stu and Fran, the crew on the popular catamaran ‘Two If By Sea’ have reached the Pacific Vava’u Islands and sent us this note. “As we arrived in Tonga last Thursday we were greeted by 6 whales at the entrance and it seems that they are out here every day, right through until November. The dolphins are here all year. Things start to ...

Belize is a great cruising ground but while there are many bareboat options, boat selection can be limited for crewed charters. We are therefore pleased to announce that two popular cats from the eastern Caribbean will be basing there this winter. Chartering in Belize is quite different from the Virgins or the eastern Caribbean chain. There are very few restaurants/bars ashore and it ...

We’ve tempted you with the last six posts describing our recent travels around the beautiful Mediterranean, but here’s the best news! With the value of the EURO dropping to just 1.23 US dollars, there has never been a better time to take a charter in Europe. Turkey, The Greek Islands (Ionian, Saronic, Cyclades, Dodecanese), Croatia, Italy, France – take a look back through ...

The Ionian Islands, on the western side of Greece, are our last charter destination on this trip and not only have we run out of time, the fine weather that has followed us the last 12 days changed dramatically just after we arrived. I managed to take a few photographs, but once the rain came there was little point in taking more! While ...

We are heading back to the Cyclades Islands of Greece. Compared to Turkey and the Saronic Gulf, this area involves much more open sailing and winds can be particularly strong later in the summer. As the photographs show however, the weather we are having for this trip is just beautiful, with temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s. May and September are ...
