Be inspired: Do something just for you; learn to sail in Antigua.

March 17, 2016

Comments Off on Be inspired: Do something just for you; learn to sail in Antigua.

There’s something special about learning; the opportunity to try something different, something new and personally rewarding.  So why not be inspired to learn to sail here in Antigua?

Combine a learn to sail trip with this stunning Caribbean destination and you have the makings of a very special vacation.  Imagine a week of being on the water, at one with nature, without any telephones or computers – pure escape.  Here you will learn whilst out sailing and on board; no classrooms, no online study – just you, some friends, your Instructor and the tropical breeze.  You will hop from bay to bay; learning about how to plan your trip on the water, the various points of sail and how to anchor at the end of the day.  No two sailing days are the same, from what you learn, to the type of breeze, to the bays you will stop in.

From our base here in sunny Antigua, we offer the American Sailing Association (ASA) Learn to Sail certification.  This is a carefully graduated sailing programme taking you from novice to being able to take the helm – all carefully tailored to your own pace of learning and understanding.  We teach the ASA Certification on the smaller boats in our fleet.  This means that you learn in a controlled, safe and comfortable environment.

Of course, no Caribbean adventure would be complete without time for snorkelling, swimming and exploring.  Your Instructor will take you to the best spots; some only accessible by boat so you get the best of both worlds.

Enjoy An Extra Day’s Sailing!

November 16, 2012

Comments Off on Enjoy An Extra Day’s Sailing!

Did you know that every time you book a week’s charter with Horizon Yacht Charters, you automatically receive 7 nights and 8 days worth of sailing?  If you compare this to some of the other charter companies, where a weekly rate only gives you 6 nights and 7 days sailing, you’ll realise that just one of the many benefits of chartering with Horizon includes getting a whole extra day out on the water!

Don’t forget that after you have checked in with our friendly front desk, we always aim to board you by midday, ensuring maximum sailing time for you and your friends or family.  And on your return, we don’t expect to disembark your yacht  until midday, allowing plenty of time for a leisurely sail back to base from your last night’s anchorage.

Horizon gives you more – another reason why you’re in the right company!

To book your 7 night/8 day charter with us contact info@horizonyachtcharters.com

Comments Off on Dream of an Unspoilt Paradise?

Enter our competition to win a 7 night vacation cruising Antigua & Barbuda in the Leeward Islands. 

Antigua & Barbuda sit in the heart of the Caribbean like a pair of gems sparkling in the blue ocean.  For sailors who enjoy their own corner of paradise, this cruising area offers a heady mix of history, sailing, exploring and relaxing.

Barbuda is just a 4 hour sail from Antigua and offers an unrivalled Robinson Crusoe experience; frigate birds, whale watching and snorkeling combine with 11 miles of unbroken pink sand beach to deliver a breathtaking memory for years to come. 

For those blue water sailors amongst you, head further south to the island of Guadeloupe and Iles des Saintes, or sail west across to Nevis and St Kitts.  All just a day sail away.

Competition rules:

  • One entry per person
  • The 7 night/8 day charter will be aboard a Bavaria 40*

The Vision of the Future

October 1, 2012

Comments Off on The Vision of the Future

The highly anticipated Vision Series from Bavaria has finally hit the US shores and will proudly be on display at this year’s Annapolis Sail Boat Show, taking place later this week (October 4-8).

The latest from Farr for Bavaria is the new design for the Vision Series. The Vision 46, is an owners layout with 2 double cabins and 2 heads and showers. Other layouts are available. An asymmetric cockpit layout allows the port side to be a generous sun lounger at anchor, and in keeping with what you would expect from Farr, and what we have witnessed already in the Cruiser range, the new Vision 46 promises to be a capable shorthanded passage maker with a good turn of speed and close winded.  For the full spec, please click here.

Recently nominated by SAIL magazine in their prestigious annual ‘Best Boat’s competition, The Vision 46 is a worthy contender and a hot favourite to take home the coveted prize.

Already available to charter for day sails, weekends or week long charters on the Chesapeake, we are also taking bookings for the Vision 46 from our BVI base.  Available from November 1, 2012, early charter bookings are looking strong and we anticipate a busy season ahead.  Check out our rates here for further information and to book!

And if you are attending the Annapolis Boat Show and would like to book an appointment to meet with our Sales Team, to discuss purchasing a yacht for either private use or to put into our charter fleet,  please email info@horizonyachtcharters.com and we will ensure to schedule in some time for you.
