2024-2025 Sailor’s Guide to the Windward Islands

Both hard copies and the digital app version of the 2024-2025 Sailor’s Guide to the Windward Islands are now available! If you’re in the US you can order hard copies online from info@cruisingguides.com . A list of Canadian and European suppliers can be found here. Locally within the Caribbean, look for hard copies at chandleries, including Budget Marine and Island Water World.

Trinidad & Tobago

The Sailor’s Guide to Trinidad & Tobago, plus Guyana and Barbados is now on our mobile app! While the content was last updated in 2012, we’re hoping that it can still provide value to those looking to spend time in Trinidad, either taking advantage of some of the great yacht services available or doing some exploring at sea and ashore! Three other titles, The Virgin Islands, The Leeward Islands, and the Windward Islands, are also available on the app.
Learn more about the app here.
