Catamarans…once a taboo word within the sailing community, are now without doubt the most popular boat for holiday charters and cruising groups all over the world and with the production of Catamarans being taken up by all the leading manufacturers, this is a style of cruising that is only going to get bigger and stronger.
Never has this statement been more true than when you describe a catamaran for use while on a sailing holiday! The amazing stability that the two hulls provide, make cruising so comfortable, sailing holidays are not all about the excitement of the sail, it is also about relaxing and unwinding, some find this peace in sailing hard and getting wet and feeling the wind in your hair.
For some members of your family or group, this might be achieved by finding a comfortable spot for a lay down, maybe read a book, sip on a rum punch or maybe have a nap, the cats provide a great world for both, giving the perfect base.
Way More than 50% of your time on your holiday will be at anchor, few anchorages (the quiet ones!) are 100% free from swell, so having a Cat reduces the roll and increases your comfort. Never has it been more satisfying than to sit at anchor…perfectly flat, sipping a glass of your favourite, watching the anchor lights of the mono hulls swinging in the night sky!
With this in mind, Marine Events, has teamed up with a Charter company in the British Virgin Islands and is creating magical holidays in what is to be considered one of the best, most accessible holiday sailing destinations in the world.
The islands provide perfect trade wind sailing (15 – 20 knots everyday) every colour of blue waters you can imagine, white sandy beaches, palm fringed anchorages stunning coral reefs, picture postcard stopovers and amazing friendly welcoming people at every stop.
Our owner Steve, spent just under three year as a charter captain in these islands and knows every inch of the chain….above and below the water, leading you on a Caribbean adventure for all the family.
Sailing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, blue water fishing, saltwater fly fishing (See our saltwater fly fishing safari!) island tours, duty free shopping and so much more, all can be done while hopping from Island to island.
