America's longest running offshore rally, the Caribbean 1500 is a fantastic event to attend.
Since it began in 1990, more than 1200 yachts have sailed the Caribbean 1500, proving just how popular an event it is.
A fun rally, and great value for money, it gives cruisers the chance to test their skill against one another while relishing in the competition. It is this that keeps the participants returning year on year, and 2013 will be no different.
Safety is paramount throughout the rally, with safety requirements to match those of the Newport Bermuda Race and Sydney Hobart Race, and each yacht is fitted with a satellite tracker.
Starting at Hampton VA and ending at Nanny Cay, Tortola BVI, the Caribbean 1500 is a spectacular, vibrant event to witness. Stop off in the Caribbean on your very own luxury charter yacht to admire the view.
