Passaat Schooner
St.Maarten's Classic Day Sailing Experience
Passaat & hurricane Irma



Something completely different and something out of the ordinary as Passaat was also out of the ordinary.

It is a trimaran called NO1SXM, formerly called Virgin Fire.
She was built in St.Croix byt the 1st and only owner Joe Colpitt.

She is speed with comfort combined, clokcing easily 15knotts with full sails and still a galley and 5 berths to rest your head adfter a great day on the water.

Our nnew website will be up and running: and also dont forget to check out our facebook page:

See you on the water!

Passaat St.Maarten Day Sailing Cruise

Passaat did not make it through hurricane Irma and sank in Simpson Bay Lagoon.

Pieter did put up a fight with her but the wind was too strong.

We are recovering now and hope to salvage her soon but it looks like she will be beyond repair.

In the near future we will announce what our next steps are.

To our guests we would like to say thank you for your great company!
It was a pleasure to have you on board and sailing with us.
