RNVRYC CARRIBEAN CRUISE 2018

GUADELOUPE CHARTERING FROM ANTIGUA 24 FEB TO 3 MARCH 2018


  


This is a registration notice to encourage people to reserve dates in their diary and holiday plans and then register their intent to join the Cruise.

Our overall plan is:-

Saturday 24th. Feb Take over yachts, provision and check out of customs in advance for departure on 25th. Pontoon Party

Sunday 25th sail to Deshaies in Basse Terrre, Guadeloupe. Dinner

Monday 26th sail to Les Saintes

Tuesday 27th rendezvous in the vicinity of Anse du Bourg, Les Saintes

Wednesday 28th sail to Dominica rendezvous at Portsmouth

Thursday 1st March Indian River Dominica and in afternoon return to Les Saintes Terre de Haut rendezvous at Anse du Bourg for end of Rally dinner

Friday 2nd Those with a 7 day charter depart for Jolly Harbour via Deshaies
The locations and details of dinners etc will be advised in due course.

We have chosen this itinerary because:

The islands south of Guadeloupe provide a new and very favourably rated cruising territory. They are relatively undeveloped with nice scenery and for this reason were chosen as the location for the BBC Death in Paradise series.

Extensive availability of hotels in Antigua for extending the holiday before and after the cruise.

 Avoids the comparatively expensive and time consuming flights from the UK to Guadeloupe.

Provides a good mix of short and longer sails.

An alternative option for those who do not wish to make the journey from Antigua is to charter from Pointe-a-Pitre in Guadeloupe. Nautilus offer a range of yachts for charter from there.

The detailed social programme will be determined by whether or not anyone is chartering from Pointe-a-Pitre.

A more detailed programme will be made available shortly together with costings for meals  etc. once restaurants have been selected and reservations agreed.
 
Please register yourself and your party now and you will receive a booking form to enable you to complete and return to the event organiser in due course.
