Rally to the Caribbean in 2014/15 PDF Print E-mail



 Wouldn’t you one day love to leave the British winter behind and enjoy a Trade Winds passage to the warmth and sun of the Caribbean - as skipper of your own boat, as crew for a club colleague, or just sharing the dream as a helper?  Club members Peter Baker and Conny Viol plan to do just this, leaving Europe in late 2014, and should there be sufficient interest in joining them have volunteered to lead a rally following the same route that the very successful RAFYC Trade Winds USA Rally took in 2001/02.

If you'd like to know more please contact Peter Baker.
