British History & a Taste of France: Antigua, Barbuda and Guadeloupe 2020

January 11 to 21, 2020

Modern Sailing is excited to announce our next Global Destinations adventure casting off January 2020! Join MSC as we return to the islands of the Caribbean and explore the unique cultures and histories of Antigua, Barbuda, and Guadeloupe.

Enjoy the warmth and beauty of these islands, each of which offer a wide variety of snorkeling, diving, island touring, hiking, and shopping opportunities. Tour the historic English Harbour of Antigua, stroll the white sand beaches of Barbuda, and taste the traditional sugarcane Rhum Agricole on the French island of Guadeloupe. This trip will feature skippered catamarans as well as bareboat options.

THE BOATS

Skippered - Moorings 4800 Catamaran

The Moorings 4800 catamaran is an exceptionally comfortable and spacious vessel. The 4800 provides large lounging areas for all crew off duty. A large galley and aft cockpit offer options for indoor or outdoor dining.  The forward cockpit provides a wonderful view while under sail, protection from the sun by an overhanging coach roof extension (forward bimini top), cup holders, and seating for 4+ persons. The helm is appointed with electric winches for easy line handling. All lines lead aft to the helm cockpit. Electric davits take the chore out of raising and lowering the dinghy.

 

Skippered - Sunsail 454 Catamaran

The Sunsail 454, built by Robertson and Caine, uniquely balances comfort, space, and a sailing performance unrivaled by most catamarans. She has a narrow profile and unlike traditional catamarans, points fairly high. She has easy access off the stern to swim. Electric davits raise and lower the dinghy. A forward cockpit, covered by the extended coach roof, is accessible through the salon’s front door and increases lounging are under sail or at anchor. With the galley in the main salon, cooks, crew and guests can all socialize and contribute to meal preparation.

 

Bareboat - Sunsail 47-foot Monohull

Created by Philippe Briand, the Sunsail 47 is an elegant offshore cruiser with an exceptional interior and deck plan, designed with ease of handling in mind. Easy to maneuver with a surprisingly lively turn of speed, the Sunsail 47 combines clean lines and an elongated hull for great performance. Designed with the sort of spacious interior typically found on a 50-plus-footer, the Sunsail 47 is built for sailing in comfort and speed. This 3-cabin version has extra room in the saloon. At sail all lines are lead to the safety of the cockpit, simplifying short-handed sailing. The perfect long- and short-leg cruiser with electric winches and the latest furling systems, the Sunsail 47 is made to tackle anything from easterly Caribbean trade winds to north-westerlies across the Adriatic.

 

Bareboat - Sunsail 41-foot Monohull

Twin wheels and a large swim platform make spending time aboard the Sunsail 41 relaxing and comfortable.  Flush hatches and clean decks give the boat a sophisticated look while ensuring safe movements while on board. Special curved hatches and windows give the boat a sleek look while enhancing visibility and ventilation below. Down below, the attention to detail can be felt throughout with its contemporary interior design and light pouring in through numerous heliports and overhead hatches.

Testimonials

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.

  • Molie M

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!
