Blue Water Awaits

Shake the stress of life ashore and the blare of your daily commute.  Find yourself breathing deeply under crisp stars, unencumbered by city lights with only the sound of the water rushing the hull aboard s/v Libra.  These passages can be as intense or educational as you would like with full sailing lessons included for those who want rigorous training while underway or you can spend your off-shift hours leisurely with a book in hand on the sun deck.  It is up to you.  Libra offers adventure-filled voyages to tropical destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico the Keys, Bermuda, Azores, Mediterranean and Atlantic Crossings.  Per passenger rates cover food, safety gear, communication devices and provisioning for the passage.  You can book a return flight home from the tropical destination or join us for the next leg and stay aboard Libra. Either way, blue water awaits.

We always offer group discounts if you round up several friends who want to join you on a sail as well as package discounts if you want to book multiple legs of a voyage.

The majority of the Caribbean in 13 DAYS!  Offshore passage south to Grenada from St Thomas then an island hope back north not spending more than 1 or 2 days in each location.  Stops listed above are examples, actual route depends on weather and sailing conditions, locations on this trip are subject to change.  Depart St Thomas then offshore to Grenada for 3 days, have a short break, and then use the easterly trades to sail our way back north, passing and stopping along the way for the next 10 days.  One of our favorite trips of the season before starting our ride East across the Atlantic in May.

Immigration and customs fees vary between islands, most are anywhere between $20 to $75 for each person to check in, you will be responsible for those fees for yourself.  Shore side expenses are not included, restaurants, bars, ect.  There is no drinking onboard Libra anytime she is underway, the dock is ok.

Great learning trip for clearing in and out of countries, intro to passage making in the challenging eastern Caribbean.
