The new Portorosa base in Sicily, is Sunsail’s fifth location in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The temperate weather and mild winds of north-east Sicily make the base a great starting point for tours of the Sicilian coast, or voyages north around the remarkable, UNESCO-protected Aeolian Islands. Sunsail’s British Virgin Islands base re-opened on 9 December 2017 and the St Martin base opened on 1 February 2018. The local teams in the British Virgin Islands and St. Martin have made great progress in just a short time since Hurricane Irma and Maria passed through these territories. Sunsail has extended the charter season in Antigua with the base remaining open until 31 July 2018.
