THE CHRISTMAS CARIBBEAN RALLY TAKES PARIS BY STORM
Thursday 13th December 2012

The Christmas Caribbean Rally team at Salon Nautique last weekend.  Photo compliments of CCR.

After a successful website launch, the Sailing Rallies team made its way to the Salon Nautique in Paris (otherwise known as the Paris International Boat Show), in association with the Lanzarote tourist board.  The Canary Islands are being developed as a Watersports Destination so the introduction of the Christmas Caribbean Rally (CCR), which departs from Marina Rubicon, Lanzarote in December 2013, is proving a great addition to their year-round program of watersports events. The contract with Marina Rubicon was signed at the Show and the French press really got behind the Rally, with Antigua as the destination generating a lot of interest. The general consensus was that although many French sailors head straight for the French Caribbean islands, Antigua makes an excellent arrival destination and will be a welcome alternative to Martinique or Guadeloupe.  We are sure Antigua will prove to be a popular alternative for French sailors.

Sailing Rallies has developed a good relationship with the popular UK chandlers and online marine shop, www.marinestore.co.uk, which delivers worldwide. Through this partnership they are pleased to be able to offer all CCR participants a 10% discount on any purchases, either in their four UK stores or online at any time until the end of the Rally.  Marine Store also has a well-stocked store in Marina Rubicon, allowing participants to not only make use of this discount for online purchases, but also when they are doing their last minute preparations in Marina Rubicon before their Atlantic voyage.

With less than two weeks until Christmas, our thoughts are turning to how special and exciting it will be to spend Christmas at sea next year with family and friends, sharing cards, presents (and even perhaps the traditional turkey!) in the middle of the Atlantic – and then to arrive in the paradise that is Antigua for New Year celebrations.  What a fantastic way for sailors to spend the festive season!
