Sint Maarten (SX) - Sint Maarten (SX)

01 February - 10 February 2023

White sandy beaches, clear blue sea, palm trees and picturesque harbors and bays – this is the British Virgin Islands! A true sailors’ paradise, because the islands are only a few hours of sailing from each other. Diving, snorkeling or rather relaxing on the beach with a book? Take your time and enjoy yourself during this laid back journey. The BVI archipelago consists of several larger islands and as many as 50 smaller, often uninhabited, islands. During the trip, the captain decides which islands will be visited, depending on wind, weather and currents, to create the best possible sailing experience Open to Windseekers aged 15-80.

STO Garant

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else. After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.

 

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
