Whatever is your sailing preference, Voilactus offers a great opportunity to explore ocean cruising in the Caribbean. You can choose to charter her to go to exotic destinations like Margarita or Los Roques islands in Venezuela, or St Barth (The St. Tropez of the Caribbean), Custeau Underwater National Park in Guadaloupe, or just sail around the charming Antigua. We include coaching by very experienced cruisers, and we’ll encourage the rotation of crewing positions, so everybody can gain experience in all aspects of the sail.
Crew can just relax and enjoy the ride, or work on sail trim, tactics, electronic aids, engine care, radio communications, navigation rules, and several other important aspects of navigation.
Participation is open to persons of all experience levels, including slots reserved for newcomers to the sport.

PRICES & CONDITIONS FOR CRUISES
Crew members will benefit by arriving one or two days before the start of every cruise, to enjoy the island’s attractions, and to settle into the boat. Cruise participants will be able to occupy their cabin the afternoon before departure day. We’ll gladly book a taxi that will pick you up at the airport (cost about $30 per trip).
While cruising, there will be several hours of sailing every day, and then docking at a marina (Extra cost) or anchoring in a bay each night. This is a unique opportunity to explore these less frequented islands, as well as having the opportunity to swim, snorkel or scuba dive, or just simply relax and enjoy the sunshine after sailing.
Accommodation would be in one of the 3 double cabins in the boat, with access to a head (bathroom). Only water and beer are included, so everyone will either share in the provisioning, or bring their own food on board. In addition to food costs, other expenses would be fuel (For tender and boat) customs & immigration charges, transportation to/from the airport, tours, or any other special activities.
The cost of every cruise will depend on its duration. Daily prices for the cruises are only $150 for the front larger cabin and $90 for each rear double cabin. You can go solo or share the cabin for the same price. One of the rear cabins also has a small bunk.
Payment terms are 50% with booking, and the balance 30 days before the first sailing day.
The price includes coaching, island guidance, water and beer for the duration of the voyage.
Cruise Requisites: Crew members must be reasonably fit for moving around the boat, and taking part in the boat handling.
