St Paddy’s Day Knees-up in Montserrat? You gotta be kidding!

Montserrat is the only country outside of Ireland to declare St Patricks Day a National holiday and boy do they do it big time with a week of cultural events, music, parades and parties. If you haven’t been there then there is no better time to experience the warmth of the people and the spectacular nature of the island all washed down with a drop of the “The Devil’s Buttermilk “(Guinness!)

Make the adventure a truly memorable one by sailing the 5 hour passage there and back on board Ondeck’s spectacular Farr 65’s round-the-world ocean going yachts
