Where will you be for Christmas next year? Why not celebrate the holidays in the Caribbean! A new transatlantic rally, launched by Sailing Rallies, will be taking place at the end of 2013. The Christmas Caribbean Rally will be departing from Marina Rubicon, Lanzarote on December 16, and participants will spend the holidays blissfully sailing before arriving in Antigua at the Jolly Harbour Marina in the New Year. The rally is timed to take advantage of optimal conditions for transatlantic crossings: when hurricane season is over and trade winds are likely to be fully established.
The timing of the rally, during school and college holidays, makes this the perfect activity for the whole family. Organizers have incorporated special events for children into the comprehensive social programs scheduled in Lanzarote and Antigua. A 2-day training weekend in the UK, included in the entrance fee, will ensure that all participants can make the most of their stay in the Canaries. The rally will be issuing each entrant a membership card, valid through May 2014, which entitles participants to special perquisites and discounts, including a free 7-day berthing in Port Louis, Grenada.
Are you ready for some smooth sailing of your own? Atlantic Yacht and Ship has a beautiful selection of sailboats for sale. “Tudo Bem,” a beautiful 50′ Gulfstar CSY 50, is waiting for you in Lighthouse Point, FL. The owner of “Tudo Bem,” an experienced Yachtsman, has been busy consistently maintaining and upgrading over the past twelve years. The spacious salon features a U-shaped seating area with removable dining table and large settee bathed in ample natural light. The private master stateroom has a queen-sized berth with private head and shower. The VIP stateroom’s oversized V berth with filler provides a very comfortable double berth with private access to the guest head and shower. The guest stateroom, located aft to starboard in the main cabin, doubles as the nav station and has over/under berths.
If you are looking for something larger, Atlantic Yacht and Ship is the right sailboat broker for you. We have a classic 1953 83′ Abeking & Rasmussen Centerboard Ketch that comfortably sleeps 8 in 4 staterooms. The “Sea Prince” features a bright and airy salon with large windows port and starboard to catch sea breezes and gleaming teak walls that were revarnished in 2000. There are two settees, replaced in 2000, located to port and to starboard, and a coffee table. The entertainment center, located to starboard, includes a stereo system, weather fax machine and KVH satellite telephone. There are two large portholes on the forward bulkhead and window treatments. Sea Prince has undergone two refits in the past 8 years as well as a major refit in Viareggio, Italy in fall of 2000. The refit in 2000 included a layout modification that added an additional stateroom and complete head. All other heads were totally renewed. Sea Prince is an excellent opportunity to own a luxury classic yacht with an extensive history, pedigree and proven sea capabilities.
