It was a fabulous weekend aboard Sailing Catamaran AKKA.
Sailing Catamaran AKKA’s amazing crew invited me to join a few VI charter yacht brokers. They had come to St Maarten for a round trip sail to St. Barth’s.
Waking up Sunday morning at Bay Colombier to cooling breezes, surrounded by perfectly varnished and painted panels, my favorite husband, and a cup of delicious hazelnut coffee was a nice little slice of Heaven…
AKKA is not your ordinary vessel!
But it’s when you get underway aboard Sailing Catamaran AKKA that you see the final piece to the equation. The carbon fiber sails, daggerboards for performance, the skill and confidence of the crew… We sailed from Marigot to St Barths in just three hours. 15 knots of wind and we were doing 12!
Captain John Westmoreland and mate Gudran Greve (aka Spike due to a bad haircut years ago) were the perfect hosts. Captain John was ever attentive to the boat; Spike went about her deck duties like a gazelle, even stopping to produce a tasty pasta primavera lunch along the way. We could help as little or as much with the sailing as we wanted. (We wanted – I loved having the helm and helping with the sails!)
AKKA is ready for the 2017-2018 Caribbean season. She is a fantastic charter catamaran for active families, sportive couples, adventure sailors, and anyone who wants a classy alternative to “out of the mold” charters…the size for value is exceptional. Call us to get more info!
