With the Ozzie dollar at better than par to the US you can hardly afford not to go and February March is the perfect time to sail the south east trades. Experience the French influences of St Barts and St Martin and the more English Antigua, Nevis and St Kitts, sailing down-current the Caribbean sun.
Race to Nevis
The rally itinerary also folds the totally unspoiled island of Barbuda into the mix.
There are many flight itineraries with several airlines available, which means there are some great stop-over opportunities en route to and from the Caribbean; New York and Paris for example.
Mariner is offering the opportunity to win free flights* to the Caribbean Canter for two people by making a booking before August 1st 2011.
