World Race mit 150 Oyster-Yachten
Letzter Sundowner für die Oyster-Flotte.
Antigua (SP) Am Sonntag, 15. Januar 2017, startet in Nelson's Dockyard auf der Karibik-Insel Antigua, dem Treffpunkt der Blauwassersegler in einer Naturbucht auf Antigua die Oyster World Rally. 150 Eigner gehen teilweise mitsamt Familie auf die etwa zweijährige Weltumsegelung. Mit dabei die Oyster 575 von Eric Alfredson (Schweden), der die jüngste ARC gewann.
David Tydeman, Chief Executive Officer of Oyster Yachts: “The feedback from our questionnaire shows that you all have amazing and varied backgrounds and different reasons for deciding to sail around the world. When you return in two years time, we anticipate that over 100 Oysters will have made that journey since the company started, which says so much about why people decide to sail an Oyster. We feel very privileged to have been able to organise the rally, you are part of a very special group of people, you have all committed the time and resources to sail around the world, and we are looking forward to your stories. Most of all we hope that you will have a great and safe adventure, we will be following you with great interest over the next two years.”
Of the 31 yachts participating in the Oyster World Rally, 15 have sailed over 4000 miles to get to the start in Antigua, including Eric Alfredson's Swedish Oyster 575 Lisanne which won class in the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers).
