The Wild Windwards – the wild side of the Caribbean

The Caribbean – white sand, crystal-clear blue waters and palm trees. But it isn't always relaxation and sunshine. In the past two years, Laura Winter and Thorsten Boehnke experienced another side of this popular getaway: they sailed between Trinidad and Dominica on their “new” 1984-built boat, pointing their bow into winds of up to 50 knots.

When they weren't testing the boat, they met the wild inhabitants of the Windward Islands. They got up close and personal with nesting leatherback turtles, learned about research and protection of sperm whales, and paddled up the Indian River to see hummingbirds.

Laura and Thorsten share their journey in their newest film, “The Wild Windwards.”
