Best time to hire a sailing or power boat:
In terms of climate, one should avoid months from June to October as it is the time of South West Monsoon with humid and rainy conditions. If you are knowledgable with tides (up to 3.5m swells) and can cope with lots of rain and winds up to 30kn, all adding up to difficult sailing conditions, than you can make serious savings on regular yacht charter rates.
You should plan to sail between October and May, maybe avoiding the very expensive period around the New Year.  This is the time of North East monsoon which provides for dry and sunny conditions with NE winds of between 5-20kn occuring daily.

Health:

About Yacht charter in Mauritius:

Mauritius is another paradise in the Indian Ocean.
Surrounded by unique indigo-coloured waters, the Republic of Mauritius could rightly be called the melting pot of the southern Indian Ocean. Not only is this island nation an enchanting place to sail, it has a rich and sometimes surprising history. Mauritius lies approximately 560 nm East of Madagascar and the republic is part of the Mascarene Islands and includes its twin island, Reunion as well as Cargados Carajos, Rodrigues and Agalega Islands.

The local Yacht Charter’s base is located in the capital Port Lous, at the Le Caudan Waterfront. The waterfront is known for its fine shopping, fun nightlife, live music, and terrific food. Mauritian’s trace their roots to many different lands, and this diversity is delightfully showcased in the Island’s cuisine. There are Indians, Tamils; Creoles from Malagasy and African origins, families who came from the Far East; as well as Franco and Anglo-Mauritians. Phoenician, Arab and Malay sailors knew about the island as early as the 10th century, although the first reported European visitors were Portuguese in 1507. A Dutch fleet landed on the island in 1598, and named it in honour of Prince Maurice of Nassau. France took control of the island in 1715, but lost it to England during the Napoleonic Wars in 1810. Mauritius became an independent nation in 1968, and a republic in 1992.

Mauritius is notable for a number of reasons; not least of which is that it is the only known habitat for a large, flightless relative of pigeons—the dodo. Hunting and the introduction of predators drove dodoes to extinction by the end of the 17th century, however. In 1812, the Mauritius Turf Club founded the Champ de Mars racecourse in Port Louis. Champ de Mars was the first thoroughbred race course in the Southern Hemisphere, and is one of the oldest in the world.

Most of the recent development on Mauritius has occurred in the north, but there is an abundance of activities and sites of interest to sailors, including a red-roofed church that overlooks the lagoon at Cap Malheureux. There are several exciting scuba diving sites in this region including Gunner’s Coin, Whale Rock and Holt’s Rocks.

In addition, there is a group of small islands off the north coast that are favoured by sailors and divers because of their crystalline waters and opportunities for swimming, snorkelling and picnicking. Round Island and Ile aux Serpents further to the north are nature reserves under conservation management to protect native species of palms and reptiles. Permits, which are available locally, are required to visit these sites.

Eastern Mauritius features a coastline with some of the island’s best white-sand beaches, including Belle Mare. Sailors will delight in secluded coves and bright green lagoons, and appreciate the slow pace of life. Captivating villages dot the landscape between the mountains and the sea. Visit the open-air markets in the village of Flacq, and remember that bartering is how business is done here.

An entirely different landscape unfolds in the south. Beaches give way to dramatic high cliffs; the protective coral reef disappears and the Indian Ocean rolls ceaselessly against the shoreline. For a sense of what 16th century explorers might have found when they first made landfall here, we recommend a visit to the Île aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve. Here, the remnants of the island’s original flora and fauna can be found. These include ebony forests, endangered birds and reptiles, rare orchids and pink pigeons.

Continuing west around the island in the direction of Île aux Benitiers, sailors might encounter dolphins in Tamarin Bay or Flic en Flac. Dolphins use these protected waters to breed and rest. In the hills around Chamarel is a rum distillery that bears the name of the village. This is an opportunity to learn about sugar cultivation on the island and about the production of rum. What sailor could resist a free taste? On this side of the island, visitors will also see the peak of the Le Morne peninsula which rises more than 589 meters (1,800 feet) above the sea. Le Morne is listed as a World Heritage Site, because it is where runaway slaves sought refuge before slavery was abolished in the mid-1800s.

It is hard not to be completely captivated by Mauritius with its cultural diversity, rich, chequered historical past and wonderful sailing opportunities.

MALDIVES YACHT CHARTER

A2A Yachting – Maldives Yacht Charter provides  Crewed, Skippered and Cabin yacht charter on catamarans, custom built super yachts, and  mega yachts. Yachts are available across the Maldives, but mainly out of main Island Male. A small selection may also be available in other Atolls or Islands, but only on request.

About Yacht charter in Maldives:

Maldives archipelago are a genuine geological marvel which attracts yacht charter clients for many years now.  Stretching across the Indian Ocean at the Equator as a magnificent strand of rare pearls, this island nation is comprised almost 1200 small coral islands, grouped in 26 atolls that extend North to South for approximately 550 nm. The Maldives are lying lowest of all countries in the world, the average above sea level height  is between one to three meters only ( appx. three to six feet). Maldivians trace their roots to several different cultures including South and Southeast Asians, Africans, and Arabians and this cultural diversity can be seen in everything from music to boat building. Music is frequently played with a local bodu-beru, or big drum, that is quite similar to African drumming. And the Maldivian dhoni, a sailboat built locally by skilled craftsmen, is strikingly similar to a dhow, the traditional Arabian sailing vessel.

The yacht charters in the Maldives start out of the main island of Male’, which is the perfect spot to begin a sailing tour of this remarkable country. If your definition of paradise is a lifestyle stripped to the basic essentials such as when the sky is blue and the sun is shining, where the toughest question to answer is if the beach now astern is more beautiful than the one ahead, one word will suffice in describing the Maldives. Perfection.

The available sailing catamarans between 56-60′ and professional crew on board will show you the itineraries which will introduce you to astonishingly lovely white powder sand beaches on one island after another. Some feature local fishing villages you can tour, others are home to elegant resorts with facilities our charterers are welcome to use, and many are uninhabited. The snorkelling and diving, shelling and abundance of marine life are all beyond compare in water the temperature of a relaxing bath.

Weather conditions in Langkawi, Malaysia:
Malaysia is a true paradise for sailors. Warm climate all the year round, offers two distinct periods:
1. The North-Easterly monsoon (winter monsoon): It dominates from November to February, and brings rain to the East coast of the peninsula and to the coastal regions of Sabah and Sarawak. It also waters the centre and the west coast, but in a less abundant way.
2. The South-Westerly monsoon (summer monsoon): It dominates from August to November, and sweeps the West coast offering less rain then the winter monsoon on the East coast. The ideal thing is to sail at Langkawi between November and April, as the prevailing North-East winds (bet-ween 5 – 20 knots), are more favourable.

Cruising ground: Romantic anchorages can be found here everywhere.  Beaches are usually sprayed with white sand, and swimming and snorkelling while surrounded by friendly fish is possible almost everywhere.  Distances between anchorages are very small which is encouraging you to discover new islands and islets. In these conditions, it is impossible not to find the anchorage or the island of your dreams almost on a daily basis.

If you want to go to Malaysia between May and October, you can also sail on the South-East coast at Tioman. This is also an exceptional destination for those seeking isolation, relaxation, peace and tranquillity.
