Welcome to.... Jus' Sail

Jus’ Sail is St. Lucia’s top rated day sailing charter company and the home of  the Jus’ Sail Youth Training Programme.

 

Your first choice in St. Lucia to leave the crowds behind and enjoy your own sailing charter, small group sailing tour, private sailing charter, day sailing experience, learn to sail; and you can even get married, propose or renew your vows afloat with us.

 

We are more than just a charter company…

 

Because we created Jus’ Sail with two simple goals in mind:

 

  • To allow the guests on our charters to relax and slip into the flow of a truly unique laidback Caribbean sailing experience aboard a traditional, locally built, classic sloop;

 

  • And to contribute to building the next generation of Saint Lucian sailors by offering training, certification and employment opportunities within the marine industry to disadvantaged local youth during the off season period.

 

By coming sailing with us you are helping to ensure the continuation of a traditional connection between the youth of this island community and the sea. Every charter allows us to work towards the next generation of avid sailors on the island of St. Lucia. Guests, should they choose to, can even give back directly by purchasing some of our merchandise (T-shirt, Cap, our yummy local black cake etc.), all profits from which go to support our training programme.

 

Awards and recognition are not why we do what we do, but they are nice to share!

 

We are extremely proud of the recognition of our dedication to customer service and the experience we offer our guests through six consecutive Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the years 2013-2018 and being named “Caribbean Charter Company of the year” in the Luxury Travel Guide 2016.

Whilst our youth training programme took us to being finalists in the prestigious World Travel and Tourism Council Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, People Category in 2016 and in 2018 we are finalists in the Social Responsibility Category for the annual Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association Awards. However, we are probably most proud of our first mate and 2013 training programme graduate O’Brian Forde who was named Employee of the Year at the CHTA awards 2017. This recognition of how far this young man has come since training and working with us is testament to his passion for and commitment to: sailing, our boat and the enjoyment of our guests. We are sure you will love OB as much as we do when you step aboard and meet him!

 

Leave the crowds behind and come sailing with us…

 

Jus’ Sail offers unique Caribbean day sailing experiences, romantic sunset cruises and special events such as proposals, weddings and memorials aboard our lovingly restored Carriacou Sloop ~ Good Expectation ~ quite simply the most comfortable and relaxing way to enjoy a sail along St. Lucia’s stunning coastline.

We look forward to hearing from you if you are considering some time on the water whilst you are staying on the beautiful island of St. Lucia.

Watch a short video on our youth training program and then get a taste of what its like to sail with us and relax aboard Good Expectation with Jus’ Sail 

In early 2018 the World Travel and Tourism Council sent a team from Greentraveller Productions to visit us and make a short video on our youth training programme. As finalists of their 2016 sustainable tourism awards this video was shown at the WTTC global summit in Buenos Aires in April 2018. We are proud to share it with you here!

The next video is much less polished but very authentic as it captures one of our most memorable charters, a romantic engagement on the Caribbean Sea. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did filming it!

A taste of authentic Caribbean sailing

For over 150 years these colourful, hand built, wooden sailing vessels traded everything through the West Indies from spices and food stuffs to rum and contraband. A once regular sight between the islands… for decades lost… Jus’ Sail is proud to put this unique piece of West Indian history back to work and we believe you will love the experience of sailing aboard as much as we do.

So for those adventurous souls seeking an authentic connection to the heritage of this historic island chain the Jus’ Sail crew will ensure you have a truly fun & memorable experience. Our wide decks and comfortable seating makes for a laidback experience be it in a small intimate group or a private sailing charter that perfectly enhances the romance of being aboard this unique traditional wooden sailing vessel.

Romantic Sunset Sails and Rum Tasting

At Jus’ Sail there’s only one thing we love as much as sailing & that’s supping some premium St Lucian rum on the deck of Good Expectation, whilst enjoying a stunning Caribbean sunset!

Sail With Us

Jus’ Sail is one of only a handful of Caribbean companies to have ever reached the finals of the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. These global awards with over 160 entries from all continents “are aimed at recognising best practice in sustainable tourism within the industry globally”. Jus’ Sail are therefore rightly proud to have been awarded as finalists in the People Award, for our work training unemployed local youth to sail and gain access to the island’s marine sector.
