What is more relaxing and enjoyable than a sailing trip? Several rental agencies and a few private boat-owners offer you outings with a crew, for a day or a half-day or more. You may also charter a sailing boat just for a sunset cruise. If the weather is agreeable, choose to tour around the island, or anchor in the quiet bays of Fourchue or Colombier. Take the time to snorkle with the equipment you'll find onboard, and admire the multicolored fauna. Then, bathe in the sun while the boat is gently rocking, sip a ti'punch on ice, and enjoy a gourmet lunch...
Sporty catamarans, mainly 13' to 20' Hobbycats, are available in Saint-Jean and in Grand Cul-de-Sac. The organizers offer you either an introduction under the supervision of a pro, or single or double sailing for the thrill of high speed on the blue.
The sailing school in Public is not confined to the sailing education of small-size Captain Blighs. Its fleet of "optimists" - a kind of soap-box with a sail - will soon be matched with a fleet of 14' Lasers available to visitors. Being managed by the yacht club, the school organises regattas all year-round for any category, and on those days, the sea-side and all the viewpoints are crammed with local people.
