THE OYSTER WORLD RALLY 2013-2014
A cruise around the world in company
What you do next could change your life forever. For this is your chance to add ‘circumnavigator’ to your name, and with it all the excitement and intrigue that very word inspires. Conceived as an event to celebrate Oyster’s 40th Anniversary, the 2013 Oyster World Rally promises endless adventure, camaraderie and unforgettable experiences.
The Rally, which set out from Antigua on Sunday 6 January and will return to the Caribbean in April 2014, attracted entries from over 30 Oyster owners. Some of those had already been planning to sail around the world, whilst others have seen this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to complete a circumnavigation with the reassurance of being part of a large fleet of Oysters, with the service and support from Oyster’s technical team that ensures.
The Oyster World Rally is being organised in-house by Oyster’s own management team and will be led by Oyster Project Manager, Debbie Johnson who will be supported by Customer Care Manager Eddie Scougall. Both Debbie and Eddie have completed circumnavigations on board Oyster yachts and their wealth of experience make them the ideal team to support owners on this journey of a lifetime.
The Caribbean start will get the Oyster fleet through the Panama Canal and into the Pacific fairly quickly, maximizing the time visiting the Galapagos Islands and the beautiful Society Islands including Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea. From the Pacific the fleet will head to the Great Barrier Reef, round the top of Australia, partying in Bali and heading west for Cape Town for Christmas and on to Brazil for carnival before joining up for a final grand party with the Oyster Caribbean Regatta in April 2014.
