Extend your Caribbean Cruising Season with the Nereid's Rally to French Guiana

By Store Bay Marine Services — last modified Jul 01, 2013 12:19 PM
June 1st is the official start of the hurricane season in the Caribbean. As cruising plans reach their conclusion and yachts head south toward the relative safety of Trinidad and Tobago, it's time for crews to think about hauling out for annual maintenance or a flight back home to visit relatives. Besides, there's no good cruising until the trade winds return toward the end of November, is there? Nothing could be further from the truth!

Don't miss this year's Nereid's Rally!

The hurricane season in the north corresponds with the dry season in the south. This is the ideal time to head for South America from the Caribbean and this year, a new rally has been organised to showcase two of the Atlantic's best kept yachting secrets - French Guiana and Guyana.

The Nereid's Rally setting off from both Trinidad and Tobago in September might be just the thing for cruisers wishing to extend their cruising season.

Tobago_Store BayThe tremendous range of facilities available in Chaguaramas Trinidad are well know within yachting circles, as are the clear waters and white sandy beaches of Store Bay Tobago. With a fabulous send-off set to take place from both venues, thanks to the involvement of Store Bay Marine Services and Yacht Services Association of Trinidad & Tobago (YSATT), this year's rally is sure to start on a high note.

Guyana_Hurakabra ResortIn Guyana, with strong backing from the Minister of Tourism Industry and Commerce and support from the Coast Guard, MARAD, the Defence Force, the Police Force and the Guyana Revenue Authority, a successful first leg is virtually guaranteed. The official welcome, hosted by the Minister for Tourism will take place at Hurakabra Resort (partners for the event).

Extend your Caribbean Cruising Season with the Nereid's Rally to French GuianaA two day fête set to coincide with the rally conclusion in French Guiana will be held thanks to the ongoing support of the Mairie of Saint Laurent du Maroni, the Gendarmerie, Marina - Saint Laurent du Maroni, and local partners including Tropic Cata.

A seminar for prospective participants is scheduled for the first week of August and last minute registration will be possible up until the 26th of August.

Hi organisers Nereid's rally.
Nice to see such a rally is taking place.
Of all places I can surely recommend to pass Suriname river as well.
At Domburg we have an equal nice spot for visitors .
Paramaribo is a Gem to visit. Read about it on Noonsite/Suriname. I wrote several times about Suriname, having visited many times by boat. visit :www.surinamonline.com A pity you all miss www.carifesta.net in August.
On top of all the supermarkets are loaded with goodies by far much cheaper than anywhere else in the carib, so stocking up is good!
Good luck all and be asured all is safe as can be do not worry a thing!
Regards Mieke Koenraadt
