Suggestions for Trip Itinerary – Antigua to Martinique (One Way)

I am planning on chartering a 50 ft monohull to sail from Antigua to Martinique (One Way) for March either 2021 or 2022. I plan on taking about 12 days for the sail.

I am considering stopping at Montserrat, Guadeloupe & The Saintes & Marie-Galante, Dominica and Martinique.


I am wide open as to suggestions, including leaving entire islands off the itinerary, best places to stop, off the beaten path anchorages, etc.
Interested in hearing the good and the bad including any safety concerns.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Suggestions for Trip Itinerary – Antigua to Martinique (One Way)

While I've only sailed past Montserrat and not visited, it is almost straight downwind from Antigua and if you head downwind first you might as well visit Nevis, then Montserrat. But then you'd need to go back upwind to visit Guadeloupe.
The Ξles des Saintes are wonderful and should be on your list. And the next stop, Dominica, is my favorite island in the chain and worth not only a visit but a stay.

There are many things to do and see in the area you plan to visit. Budget your time based on what you and your crew enjoy most .... quiet anchorages, snorkeling/diving/nature or landside attractions/tours , shopping/nightlife. Ask your charter company about how/when to secure things like the boat, dinghy and water toys. You can get a good idea about problems in any area by checking out CSSN, safetyandsecuritynet.org . the Zoom maps on their website are great. you can also get email ALERTS (free).
