Re: Best 3 weeks in the Caribbean?

During December I would favour the southern Antilles. The weather in the BVI and other islands close to the continent get cold fronts and bad weather from December until March.

You could arrive at Martinique ou Saint Lucia. Martinique offers more anchorages and much better provisioning. And sail to Grenada. It is never close to the wind and you can expect good weather. Yes the Christmas winds might be present. 15 to 20 knots are usual.

Lots of swimming and diving in the Grenadines. So I would think: Martinique, St Lucia, Bequia, Union, Tobago Cays, Carriacou, Grenada. There are other islands in between but these are the most popular.

Not too much sailing, give them time to enjoy each visit.

Re: Best 3 weeks in the Caribbean?

I had my three daughters and my girlfriends two girls, ages 13 to 22 yrs in the Virgin Islands for 2 weeks and they agree it was the best vacation they have ever had. Chartered from VIP, St Thomas ,went to St Johns, cleared in Jost Van Dyke . Tortola, Peter Island, Virgin Gorda and Anegada are all short sails with snorkeling everywhere. Enjoy
