Just returned from a holiday of a lifetime on Kalimba. 2 weeks of paradise! I am/ was a totally inexperienced sailor, but never once felt uncomfortable. Peter sails his yacht with a relaxed ease and is totally in control. We all had little jobs to do, which were expertly handed out by Peter, who seems to have an incredible knack of spotting people’s strengths and weaknesses. The yacht is beautifully maintained, inside and out and sleeping on the boat is so relaxing with the fantastic gentle rocking motion and the complete fresh air of the sea.
We visited St. Lucia and various islands, all of which were beautiful but the various islands of Bequia and Mayreau were just fantastic. The beaches and bays of all the islands are just stunning! On the 8th day of our cruising, we sailed into Grenada and its marina and our last three days were spent relaxing on the beach and two exhilarating trips on Peter’s 43ft rib/ speedboat. We went to the beach one day and then to a barbeque on Sunday at Hog Island, which was great fun. We even got a round of applause from the locals for turning off Robbie Williams, which was coming out a bit too loud on the boat’s stereo system! They seem to prefer Bob Marley!
All in all, I could not recommend this holiday of a lifetime more. It was so relaxing and really made by our laid back skipper, who was great company and a great chance to see the unspoilt Caribbean as opposed to the more formal resorts.
