Southampton based global boat transporter Peters & May is pleased to announce that it has opened up further transport options for participants competing in the prestigious Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. Peters & May will now be giving rally participants the option to load in Antigua as well as St Thomas.
Peters & May has been a proud supporter of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers for 11 consecutive years, offering participants a wide range of shipping options from the Caribbean as an alternative way to return to Europe. Historically, all vessels have been brought into the port of St Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. This year saw over 100 yachts depart Antigua over four vessels; a fair proportion of which were ARC participants.
However, there was increasing demand for an alternative, as Steven Stanbury, Caribbean Trade Manager, explained: “Responding to demand from a number of clients, we loaded our first vessel in Antigua last April. Due to the success and continued demand, we are now pleased to be able to extend this option going forward. Being the sailing hub of the Caribbean, I hope this will not only benefit our clients, but also many of the local commercial enterprises.
Andrew Bishop of Atlantic Rally for Cruisers noted: “Peters & May has supported World Cruising Club participants for over a decade, providing shipping options for our participants. This proactive development is most welcome and we look forward to working alongside them to further expand ports and route options globally.”
