Storm Petrel in New England and ready for Yacht Charters / Sailing Vacations

We recently heard from Phil & Laura of the charter yacht Storm Petrel and they made it up to Newport from St Thomas in just 10 days! Nice to hear that they had a good sail and arrived safely, but it is also an inspiration for our journey from St. Martin to Newport that will be starting soon.

Phil & Laura from charter yacht STORM PETREL Book with Paradise Connections Yacht ChartersWe really look forward to seeing Storm Petrel up in New England. Phil is originally from Cambridge and he sails most every year from the Caribbean to New England. He really knows the area and I'm sure he'll have lots of "local knowledge" tips for us.

STORM PETREL is available for charter this summer in New England. They are based in Buzzards Bay so they have access to some incredible cruising ground, plus you could also use Storm Petrel as your base for the Newport Folk and Jazz festivals in the beginning of August.

Storm Petrel in New EnglandStorm Petrel is a Robert's designed 44-foot Offshore 44 sloop. Phil Levine is the captain and owner of Storm Petrel. His chef/crew is his girlfriend, Laura. Storm Petrel has a queen cabin aft and a V-berth cabin forward. They have an 11-foot dinghy with 15HP motor, windsurfer, hammock, snorkel equipment. Besides enjoying windsurfing, Phil also does kite boarding! In fact he has three kites and a couple of boards on his boat, in addition to his wind surfing gear. They also like to play basketball, so maybe you can squeeze in a bit of BB court time, too! Alcoholic beverages are not included in their rates, but will stock with your preferences at cost.
