Join Sail Solomons for a fantastic flotilla week in the Leeward Islands this winter! A flotilla allows you to “cruise in company” – you’ll sail as captain or crew on a beautiful, well-equipped charter boat, in company with a lead boat/flotilla leader who is a local area expert. Flotillas give you the freedom to do as you please, with the security of knowing that there is help readily on hand. It’s a great balance of independence and support for new and seasoned sailors alike.
Sail Solomons is hosting a Catamaran flotilla from St Martin, offered at the dates and prices shown below. Prices are based on deposits received by 1 August, allowing yacht confirmation for early booking discounts. Once yachts are confirmed, deposits are not refundable. After that, yacht prices increase 20-30% – if the boats are still available. Any savings gained from additional volume discounts will be credited to each yacht’s Cruising Kitty, which will be needed for mooring fees, ice, water, beverages, etc.
- Cabins: prices are per person for double-occupancy cabins.
- Singles: if you’d like to share with another single, let us know and we’ll try to match you up.
- Private single cabins: Calculate (cost/person x 2) – $300 for provisions & insurance.
- Courses: you’ll have the option to take ASA 104 Bareboat Charter during the Monohull week, and ASA 104/114 Cruising Catamaran during the catamaran week. Course cost is additional ($250/student).
If you’d like to participate in the flotilla, but reserve your own boat (smaller or larger, power or sail), just let us know and we can work a suitable yacht for you.

Current airfares are approximately $550/person/round trip from the Washington DC area to St Martin (SXM). Plan to arrive on/before the charter start date listed below, and depart after noon on the charter end date. Information on ground transportation will be provided.
Each boat will fund and maintain a Cruising Kitty for onboard expenses including: refundable security deposit, mooring or marina fees, customs fees, ice, water, fuel, trash disposal, supplemental provisions, and beverages.
Your fee includes travel insurance provided through the charter company, which covers the traveler’s fees in the event of delays or cancellations due to sickness, injury or death of the traveler, traveling companion or immediate family member. For the plan to be effective, each member onboard must carry this insurance. Detailed “Description of Coverage” is available on request.
Please contact Sail Solomons soonest with any questions you might have, and if you’d like to come aboard as Captain or Crew. Remember, deposits are due by 15 August to reserve your spot onboard! We’ll be providing lots of information and hosting planning seminars as the flotilla approaches.
