The Grenadines, a small group of the Caribbean Windward Islands, are definitely a well known kitesurfing paradise and a perfect environment for a kiteboarding catamaran sail and kite camp.
The north-east Aliseo is steady and reliable blowing between 15 and 25 kn from December to May. The reef is providing well sheltered anchorages for the catamaran in amazing lagoons and cays where to kite, enjoy the sun and swim with turtles.
Union Island, Frigate, Mayerau, Tobago Cays, Petit Tabac and Petit St. Vincent are the paradisiac spots we will visit during the camp.
The catamaran is equipped with watermaker, auxiliar generator, AC, foil board and a 10 - 15 hp tender for kite rescue and safety.
On board there will be 3 crew members during Xmas period: skipper, kite instructor and hostess providing sailing, spot guiding, rescue and coaching and full board service. In March there will be on board 2 crew memebrs: skipper - kite instructor and a chef.
