Sailing and yoga on a LUXURIOUS catamaran
For winter 2018, we are organising a sailing cruise starting and ending in Martinique, going to the Grenadine islands on a luxurious and spacious catamaran.
Swim among colourful fish with disparate forms and sea turtles. Walk through the tropical scents of the luxuriant forest and to cool off under a waterfall. Reach an island at the end of the world, leave your footprints in the white sand, to slip under the mangroves and to follow the footsteps of the last iguanas. Walk through the villages with colourful houses and taste the flavours of the local cuisine. Taste a lobster on the beach and dance to the beat of a steel band. There will be fishing equipment on board, so we’ll also catch fish!
Yo live on a sailboat is a little bit different that to live on the ground and there are some rules (rulers) to be respected but so much enjoyment to be discovered! The movements of the sailboat are different on a mono hull and on a catamaran.
The catamaran is more flat, ” it moves less ” but when the sea is trained(formed) the movements can be more struck and it will be necessary to take into account it.
Suzanna, our yoga instructor, will be on board! We start our day with Yoga sessions every morning on the catamaran or on land depending on the location and weather conditions. Please bring your own mat.
