We want to go someplace warm and wonderful, do a few days of cat sailing or maybe monohull but not on cruisers. There is a guy in Beleize but does only groups now.
Any suggestions, experiences please share.


I spend my money on whiskey, women, motorcycles and sailing. What's left over is wasted.

Took on a little research while waiting, since there does seem to be some interest, although not a huge range of options, seems fair to share.

So. For those coming after with the same question:

Belize operation - large groups only now

How's your French?

They have dates for trips to Turkey this year. A little further than we were thinking.

Discussion here about Florida. Little nearer than we were thinking

Bitter End Yacht Club BVI

(This is probably closest to what we're looking for.)

Resorts
Club Med Turks & Caicos

Of course - still very open to anyone else's ideas!

I rented a wave in Puerto Rico, probably the same place. That was the roughest boat I've ever sailed. It needed some TLC.

Theres one in Greece that looks pretty awesome. I can't remember the name of it though.


I'm boatless.

Good to know - thanks Karl. I'll see if Google can find the Greek option.

Wildwind. I've never been there myself, but people I know went and were raving about the experience. And Wildwind is also a great sponsor of the Piers Race, so there.

I have also heard a lot of good things about this: http://www.amfibietreks.co.uk/

I think they do a mini RAID around Sardinia with camping etc.
I've sailed at Sardinia and its a great place for it, nice wind and beaches.

Excellent choice. On the expensive side, but a really great SAILING resort. I've been to a bunch of places and this one really has a lot of sailing available ... and racing. Great diving, snorkeling, EATING and so much more!
