2011 ClubSwan Caribbean Rendezvous eighth annual edition to be held 14th-19th March.

Nautor’s Swan is heralding the coming of Spring this year with the highly popular cruising calendar event, ‘the ClubSwan Caribbean Rendezvous’. With nearly 100 participations for 2011 there will be a strong cruising contingent from the Swan fraternity congregating in the British Virgin Islands.

Over 20 yachts are heading to the Caribbean to enjoy a week long structured cruise between some of the world’s most idyllic islands. The Bitter End Yacht Club will be their first port of call before embarking on a number of passages. Crews will be offered ample opportunities to drop anchor in nature’s paradise and relax in sheltered luxury moorings.

Nautor’s Swan has a strong cruising angle now established with the annual programme. The Rendezvous concept of cruising in the comfort of the Swan family as well as the option of enjoying some traditional friendly competition is the perfect balance for a growing segment of Swan yacht owners.

Many of the crews are a mix of friends and family as well as some groups new to the spirit of Swan opting to charter.

The Rendezvous programme will take in four of the famous British Virgin Islands. Crews will be able to focus on the sailing and leave all logistics to Swan management providing pre-arranged cruise configurations and all social functions. This includes; live music, cocktail receptions, a lobster dinner and St Patrick’s Day celebrations to extend enjoyment into the evenings.

The cruising flotilla will also be involved in a floating Open Day where owners and sailors alike will all be able to view the cross spectrum of the Swan line at their leisure.
