Sailing through the night can be stressful, so experiencing it for the first time with a certified sailing instructor onboard is a great way to go. We will be sailing our Lagoon 39 catamaran from Grenada to the USVIs in March 2021.
We have two spots available – you must be 104 certified or similar experience. All crew will be expected to cover rotating shifts at the helm.
You will need some flexibility in your schedule to accommodate weather conditions.
We plan to leave Grenada on March 23rd – weather permitting. The sail should take approximately 3-4 days followed by additional nights aboard the catamaran in St.Thomas.
The following information is from the Health Ministry of Grenada (https://covid19.gov.gd):
You will need to apply for a ‘Travel Authorization’ to enter Grenada (done online very simply) within 7 days of travel date. You will need a negative PCR test 72 hours prior to arriving in Grenada. You should upload the results on the website listed above prior to leaving, also bring hard copy with you.
We have been advised that captain and crew arriving to transport a yacht from Grenada to the USVIs, will not have to quarantine upon arrival, they will be transported to the yacht via taxi and expected to depart right away. You should verify this information for yourselves at the website listed above, you may also call them.
We are not responsible for any changes made by the Health Ministry that may affect your travel plans.
Visitors to the USVIs must get certification through the USVI Travel Screening Portal, which requires that you submit a negative COVID-19 test within five days of travel to the islands. Travelers can also gain entry with a positive COVID-19 molecular or antigen test result taken within 4 months of travel to the USVIs.
Note: We will have to get a PCR test when we arrive in St. Thomas, as your test prior to leaving the US will have exceeded the five-day requirement. Again, you should verify this information for yourself.
