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

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
  • Prize does not include; flights, transfers to and from the airport, provisioning, mooring fees, cruising permits, national park permits, fuel/water, Hull damage waiver.

*Subject to availability – model and size may vary. If you require a skipper, the fee is extra and is $150 per day for the duration of your charter, (not including food/beverages/optional gratuity).   Please remember that the skipper needs his/her own cabin. Alternatively an instructor is US$165 per day.

The winner will picked at random on December 31, 2012.

Yacht ownership in Antigua; doing it Canadian style!

April 30, 2011

Comments Off on Yacht ownership in Antigua; doing it Canadian style!

We first met Stuart and Dianne Leigh from Ontario when they chartered with us back in December 2004. They took our Beneteau 393 called “Sensei”. They were due to sail elsewhere but a hurricane had put paid to their plans, so we met them in Antigua and looked after them from here. Since then, they have been back to sail with us in Antigua and, since December 2010, are now the proud owners of a Bavaria 40 Cruiser called “Tardis”.

Passage planning… in advance of your Antigua sailing trip, we can help.

March 20, 2011

Comments Off on Passage planning… in advance of your Antigua sailing trip, we can help.

Many of our guests send us their Antigua passage plans in advance and this is such a great idea. Whether you are sailing Antigua & Barbuda only, or perhaps taking a trip south to Ile Des Saintes via Guadeloupe or the one way cruise to St Martin.

That way, we can work with the Captains to make alternative suggestions and comments given our local knowledge and other guest experiences. It’s also good to start to have a clear picture in your mind of how to get into each anchorage and which anchorage would be good in certain conditions.

Bob and Paula Grenier had a great time sailing Antigua and Barbuda

March 5, 2011

Comments Off on Bob and Paula Grenier had a great time sailing Antigua and Barbuda

Bob and Paula Grenier chartered our new Bavaria 40 “Tardis” last month and had a great time! We’ve selected these four photographs to share. The view is actually from Fort Barrington – a short hike up from Deep Bay, a pretty anchorage on the north west coast of Antigua – it’s certainly not a crowded anchorage as you can see! The other great thing to do in Deep Bay is to snorkel over the wreck of the Andes – a merchant ship that went down in 1908. In another photograph, Paula is at the wheel leaving Antigua behind as they make the 25nm passage up to Barbuda. Once there, they visited the Frigate Bird Sanctuary and took this great shot of the birds. A sailing cruise would not be complete without a cold beer at the end of the day watching the sun go down – Cheers! It’s so nice to welcome people back to Antigua time after time and we hope to see Bob and Paula next year for some more great Caribbean sailing.
