Take the tradewind route across the Atlantic from the Canaries to the Caribbean with a choice of routes and starting dates.
The classic: a November crossing, from Tenerife to Barbados, ready for a Caribbean Christmas.
This early start from Tenerife will appeal to sailors who wish to reach the Caribbean at the start of the safe season and make landfall in an island such as Barbados from where a cruise can be easily planned to sail north or south along the chain of islands.

Cross the Atlantic later in the season. Make a direct passage from Tenerife to Barbados in January .
One of the attractions of this timing is that participants are encouraged to come to Tenerife before Christmas and spend the festive holidays in this attractive city, enjoying a wide choice of activities culminating in the celebrations associated with the Three Kings festivities.
