  2. Plus shorter day sails
  3. Trade winds and sensational blue water sailing
  4. Winter Sun and tropical 22-25 degrees C
  5. Island jeep safaris with shared costs
  6. Mountain walks amongst lush crops
  7. Miles of sandy beaches, shipwrecks and turtles
  8. Sea rich in wahoo, turtles and tuna

Join Oosterschelde  in her favourite winter sunshine sailing grounds. She has sailed round the world twice and will do so again from 2023 to 2025

Be as energetic or chilled as you like. 

Jeep safaris and walks ashore are optional but a great way of sampling the culture and different landscapes on each island.
