Sailing in the Bahamas

Bahamas's insider take:

With its 100 miles of lee shore, Eleuthera Island offers sailors scores of protected coves and more than 35 miles of untrampled sands, picturesque ports of call, and waterfront bars for mingling with fellow yachties. There are no yacht rentals on Eleuthera, but Duke Water Taxi and Boat Rental rents Boston Whalers (Main dock, Harbour Island; 242-359-7952). The Abaco islands, with a strong tradition of boat building and seafaring, are one of the finest corners of the Bahamas for sailing enthusiasts. (They're also the only place in the Bahamas where people can embark on "bareboat charters," ships without a crew.) The pace of life perks up noticeably twice a year during the islands' top sailing events: Regatta Time in Abaco in July and the All Abaco Regatta in September (both as much about partying as racing). Contact The Moorings Bareboat & Signature Yacht Charters to rent yachts (minimum, three days). It has 28 boats in its fleet, ranging from a Monohull Beneteau to a 4700 catamaran (The Moorings, Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco Island; 800-535-7289;; reserve well in advance).
