First Ever Amel Eastern Caribbean Rally 2019


Amel Eastern Caribbean Rally April 2019
Sponsors




This will be the first-ever Amel Eastern Caribbean Rally. The Rally is not affiliated with Amel Yachts and is not a race or Regatta. The Rally is centered and focused on Martinique. All points other than Martinique are only suggested optional meeting places and times. 

We all really like la Marina du Marin. It is the home of
Amel's Caribbean Service Center, Caraibe Marine, and Carenantilles Haulout Yard. It is also the home of our favorite Caribbean Bar & Grill, Mango Bay, and many Amel owners have purchased their Amel from Stephanie or JP at Caribbean Yacht Sales. The Rally is open to any Amel yacht and her crew.

Amel is famous for building the best world cruisers that have the conveniences of home and

 can be easily handled by a crew of two, normally a couple. Most Amel yacht owners proudly maintain their Amels in a condition ready for Captain Henri Amel's inspection. Amel yacht owners freely and proudly share their experiences with one another. Amel yacht owners usually sail as a fleet of one, but on rare occasions love the opportunity to mingle with like-minded owners of sister ships. This Rally is designed to get Amel Yacht owners together in some of their favorite places.
