Climate and Sailing Conditions in the Caribbean
Our favourite time of year for sailing in the Caribbean is in early summer between March and June. The one time of year we don’t advise sailing is during hurricane season from August to September.
Early summer is such a great time of year for cooler temperatures, blooming flowers and there are fewer travellers in general meaning you can enjoy a calmer and less crowded paradise.
Another plus is the weather during this time of year. The trade winds at this time of year are just perfect for smooth sailing and exploring the exotic coastlines. The East Coast of Martinique is particularly glorious and a wonderful time of year to explore its lagoons.
