As we sit here in St. Maarten having breakfast overlooking the Caribbean at the Royal Passanggrahan guest house, we are reflecting on the fabulous time we had aboard Sagitta, already missing the warm smiles of the crew and the new found friendships made throughout the week. It was the perfect vacation for people like us - casual, intimate, and relaxing. Lots of sailing and beach time on islands with breathtaking views, shared with people from diverse backgrounds but with the same down-to-earth love of simple beauty and a spirit for adventure. Our cabin was very comfortable and seemed to magically return to its pristine state before noon each day. We loved getting to know the crew and captain who were always willing to have a chat while confidently and quietly attending to the ship and its other passengers. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The food was very fresh and plentiful and too good to say no to, even when our bellies protested that enough was enough. Each island visited had something for everyone and Island Windjammers provides the flexibility to accommodate most tastes, whether it's sunning on picture perfect beaches on Anguilla, beach bar hopping on St. Kitts, snorkeling in crystal clear waters off St. Barth, or strolling in the lovely botanical gardens on Nevis. This is not a big cruise ship experience and we love the intimacy and personalized service of being on a smaller vessel that provides the true feel of sailing as if you were on your own private yacht. And given the small number of passengers, we got the bonus of making some wonderful new friends we hope to meet again for future adventures. We love you, Island Windjammers! See you again next year when we can sail on your newest vessel, Vela!
