Congratulations to the Winning Bar Wars Team!

May 19, 2013

Comments Off on Congratulations to the Winning Bar Wars Team!

Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada was thrilled to be involved with the recent Bar Wars competition in Trinidad! With 24 heats around the country, and 8 one-hour televised Final Play Offs, this highly successful TV series was made by Abovegroup Ogilvy in partnership with Carib Brewery Ltd,  & created by Russ Jarman Price.  The grand prize was a 5-day luxury cruise up the Grenadines, enjoying the treats and treasures of the Southern Caribbean with Horizon Yacht Charters!

After grueling, fun-filled rounds of dance, Q&A trivia, a myriad of crazy physical challenges and some pretty serious karaoke, the lucky winning team was announced… Congratulations to Frankie’s Bar on Ariapita Avenue, in Port of Spain!  We were very happy to welcome the winning team on board and show them a great time!

Here are just a few photos of their trip, as they sailed through the Grenadines from beautiful St Vincent to Grenada.  Their itinerary included Bequia, Mustique, Palm Island and the stunning, unforgettable Tobago Cays Marine Park, which you can only get to by boat!  Remember to contact us to book a sailing holiday to remember with Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada!

Dream of an Unspoilt Paradise?

October 31, 2012

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. 

The island of Antigua offers a mix of coves and bays from the deserted offshore islands in the North Sound to the bustling harbours of English and Falmouth to the south.    From casual lobster lunches on white sand beaches to some of the finest International cuisine; there’s something for everyone. 

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*
  • Block out dates include; Christmas, New Year, Thanksgiving, Presidents Week, Antigua Sailing Week or Easter
