Where are the Lesser Antilles?The Lesser Antilles form an arc stretching from Puerto Rico to Venezuela which is a sailor's paradise: distances from one island to the next never exceed a day's sailing, the climate (from November to May) guarantees safe conditions, the wind is regular, anchorages are many, harbours and marinas are easy to access and charming.
Most of the islands have regular and charter airline connections with the United States and Europe, and a number of charter companies operate from bases on almost all the islands.
The languages spoken by the local population are English and/or French with their own exotic flavour, the aboriginal inhabitants having been virtually exterminated (with the exception of Dominica) and replaced by African slaves and European settlers.
