To the Amazon basin

A new rally has been set up to take yachtsmen already in the Caribbean to the exotic destinations of Guyana and French Guiana.

The Nereid Rally sets off from both Trinidad and Tobago in September this year to two of the Atlantic’s least known cruising destinations.

Trinidad & Tobago has always been known as a safe haven for yachts during the hurricane season but yachtsmen need not remain hunkered down in an anchorage or hauled out for extended maintenance when fair sailing in agreeable weather is so close at hand.

The new rally offers sailors, a convenient way to discover the Amazon basin’s least spoilt anchorages and an excuse for prolonging the traditional sailing season.

Registration details and more information can be found at the official rally web site:
