Lesser Antilles

Destinations
- Caribbean/West Indies
Again, because of limited time and space,
we will only deal with the more popular
destinations for Canadian and US charterers - the Caribbean / West Indies with
a brief look at the Mediterranean /
Adriatic.
Caribbean / West Indies - Bahamas,
Gulf of Mexico, Great Antilles, Lesser
Antilles (Windward and Leeward Islands)
Venezuela
According to WorldAtlas.com the
modern definition of the West Indies
includes:
The West Indies is a large group of

islands that separate the Caribbean Sea
from the Atlantic Ocean. They comprise
three main island groups:
* Bahamas (north)
* Greater Antilles (central)
* Lesser Antilles (southeast)
The Bahamas consist of over 3,000
individual islands and reefs.
The Greater Antilles include the
island countries of Cuba, Jamaica,
Haiti and the Dominican Republic
(Hispaniola), and Puerto Rico.
The Lesser Antilles are the much
smaller islands to the southeast, and they
are divided into two (2) groups, the
Leeward Islands and Windward Islands.

The greatest density of charter bases
reside in the Lesser Antilles. For our purposes, we will divide this area into 3 destinations - The Windward and Leeward
Islands (minus the Virgin Islands), the
Spanish and US VI and then the British
Virgin Islands (BVI).
The Windward and Leeward Islands
(minus the Virgin Islands)
The Lesser Antilles is made up of the
Windward and Leeward Islands. You can
see in this illustration the bases the global
companies have in this diverse chartering
area. And we also see the introduction of
Barefoot and Horizon charters companies.
This is an interesting sailing area as
there is a lot of open water. This is not
necessarily an area for beginning sailors
but is can be a rewarding experience for
those with a few charters under their
belts and want a more challenging and
adventurous destination.

Most people are unaware that there are
actually three separate groups in the
Virgin Islands running from just east of
Puerto Rico to the Anegada Passage
between BVI and St. Martin, St Barrts
and Anguilla. The Spanish Virgin Islands
are accessed through Peurto Rico. The
