tioned and celebrated New Years on the island. Other dignitaries associated with Nevis
are Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, whose
birthplace and early childhood home was Nevis, and British Admiral Horatio Nelson
who was stationed in Nevis early in his naval career and met and married Frances
Nisbet, the young widow of a Nevis plantation-owner.
The plantations are no longer operating as plantations but have been turned into
beautiful resorts, many of which you can hike to along old trails. We did some cycling
around the island as well as hiking and enjoyed the beach bars and excellent restaurants ashore. We also spent a magical full moon night working with volunteers protecting and tagging turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs on the quiet pristine beaches on
Nevis. We were there in late July and early August in time for the annual Culturama
Festival too, which is the island's carnival, but there are numerous festivals and events
all year round.
If you are cruising or chartering in the Leeward Islands, be sure to make Nevis a
stop in your cruise plan.

DOMINICA
Dominica (not to be confused with the
Dominican Republic) is said to be the
one island in the Caribbean that is still
closest to the States that Christopher
Columbus would have discovered it
when he and his crew came upon it in
1493 on their second voyage to the New
World. Today its pristine mountainous
terrain makes it a haven for hikers and the
beautiful clear waters make it a treasure
for sailors, divers and whale watchers too.
If you love quiet places and getting out in
nature, Dominica is a great place to visit.
We last visited Dominica aboard our
Southerly 49 sailboat, Distant Shores II, a
year ago after island-hopping from St
Maarten to Nevis, Nevis to Guadeloupe,
and Guadeloupe to Dominica where we
anchored in Prince Rupert Bay off the
town of Portsmouth , the island's main
