BEAT THE WINTER BLUES

Join a Caribbean Regatta

Is your boat in storage and you find yourself pining for the next racing season? Perhaps you've had enough of the damp cold of winter and you need a vacation to a tropical destination. Maybe you're the type to spend a few weeks hanging out in the Caribbean just because you can. Whatever your reason, it could be worth taking advantage of the several regattas happening in the Caribbean over the winter months. Whether you have a whole crew ready to go or just yourself there are a few ways to join in the festivities. One of the easiest ways to participate in one of the many Caribbean regattas is to register with Ondeck Ocean Racing. Ondeck offers packages for individuals to crew in various regattas aboard skippered yachts. They also provide a fleet of boats for those who wish to charter. Their fleet is made up of Farr 65s,  Beneteau 40.7s,  Dehler 39s, and  Farr 40s.
