Having followed Coco’s incredible Atlantic crossing with the ARC, we discovered the footage of the crew’s first sail in the paradise-like islands of the Caribbean where they enjoyed the amazing marine wildlife. Relive the start of Coco‘s adventures of in the Caribbean in Episode 2 of #MyBoatAndI.

The first shots of Ceylan and Alfie perfectly reflect the joys of sailing and sharing some unique moments in the Caribbean. In the previous episode, we followed the crew to the Tobago Cays. Their wonderful Caribbean voyage was only just beginning, and the newlyweds continue to enjoy the islands of the West Indies. Determined to make the most of the heavenly scenery, we now find the owners of Coco in Martinique, the northernmost of the Windward Islands explored by Ceylon and Alfie.

Ceylan and Alfie explore the beautiful island of Martinique with their friends Ollie and Claire from Amanaki. They had bought their boats at the same time and met while preparing for the ARC in Las Palmas. They went to visit the tropical plants and trees at the Jardin de Balata tropical gardens, stumbling across a natural swimming pool, an opportunity for them to dive in and share some good times with their friends.

After exploring the island, Coco and Amanaki cruise in company towards Dominica and Guadeloupe, engaging in a friendly race. The two yachts sail almost alongside each other, sharing these great times together.

Alfie and Ceylan arrived at their second stopover, the island of Dominica. Here they spend a night before carrying on to the last port of call for this episode, in Guadeloupe. All of these encounters and destinations have enriched their sailing over the past few months. Ceylan continues to enjoy fishing and tries to catch some lobsters for dinner.

The Coco crew are about to embark on new adventures at sea. But where will the next leg of their round-the-world trip take them? Stay tuned to follow their cruise.

A look back at their first sail in the Caribbean

In the second episode, Coco’s owners have arrived in the Caribbean after their Atlantic crossing with the ARC. They marvelled at the scenery of the Tobago Cays, a dream destination for Ceylon and Alfie. They enjoyed all the pleasures of diving in crystal clear waters and loved seeing all the marine life to be found in the Caribbean, including turtles, manta rays and starfish, among many others.
