As the Caribbean gears up to welcome the 2020 charter season, IGY is thrilled to announce its inaugural IGY Caribbean Yacht Launch.
A ‘yacht gathering’ rather than a show, the three-day event will run from Wednesday December 2nd to Friday December 4th at IGY’s award winning Yacht Haven Grande, St Thomas, USVI, and aims to celebrate the arrival of the Caribbean season in style.
Specifically designed to support retail charter yacht bookings and charter support service companies during the 2020/2021 season at a time when the need for assistance could not be greater, brokers and agents will be able to access latest charter destination information at the event and virtually via webinars. Crucial, up to date local travel and Covid-19 regulations will also be presented during these presentations.
Naturally, strict health and safety measures will be in place at all times to ensure that guests can relax and enjoy the event safe in the knowledge that their protection is paramount. Reservations are required for all activities.
Highlights include IGY’s IronCrew competition, USVI, BVI and St. Maarten updates on how to enjoy a successful winter yacht charter season, Covid-19 testing and availability, accessible destination itineraries, a guide to which major attractions remain open, provisioning and security updates as well as the chance to visit participating yachts (numbers on board will be strictly limited and face masks and social distancing are required.)
There’s also a Dock, Dash and Dine option at Yacht Haven Grande’s onsite restaurants Navy Beach, Enkai Sushi and Moe’s Fresh Market while socially distanced sporting fun can be had via tennis, gym, volleyball and yoga initiatives.
The event will close on Friday with an informal awards ceremony and elegant pool chilling time during which attendees can build and cement new friendships and socialize in a stylish and protected environment.
‘This will be a unique, intimate, secure and value driven experience in a private marina environment in support of an industry that directly impacts local economies’ says IGY’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing Bert Fowles.
