Caribbean Spring! Join the Tall Ship Picton Castle for this lovely March journey around the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy Bermuda’s hospitality before setting course for the Spanish Wells in the Bahamas. Set the sail, steer, navigate and enjoy being part of an international crew of passionate sailors. This voyage is the perfect start to a sailing season! No sailing experience required, selection process applies. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Saint George (often called St. George’s, a confusion with the parish it is in) is the second town and former capital of Bermuda. Founded in 1612, the town still keeps its historic colonial centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) – stroll around King’s square and feel what the Caribbean was like under the British Empire. Choose to tour heritage buildings or the oldest remaining fortifications in the New World, built to protect the city from attacks by pirates and Spaniards.

The Bahamas is an island state south-east off the coast of Florida. Sandy, white beaches and turquoise sea, along with an interesting history (many infamous pirates were based in Nassau, including Blackbeard) make it a perfect holiday spot. Take a walk through historical Nassau and try local specialties or go for a dip in the sea with famous swimming pigs! Do water sports, take a walk on the beach, browse the local handcraft or take a trip to the Columbus Point – either way, you won’t be bored!

    The long days at sea started to take their toll. My 19-year old fellow Windseekers felt their boots start to boil. Time for some whoopie in the wheelhouse!
