The summer is almost over, winter is coming and so is the Caribbean racing season!
You still have plenty of time to plan everything: from which boat to charter to which idyllic paradise you want to race in, but the sooner you book, the sooner you can start that all important countdown!
We know this can be a tough decision to make, so have compiled a handy list for your diaries below along with a selection of charter options.
You will notice that the links below take you to a website for LV Yachting. In the past there has been some confusion at events between us and another similarly named company and, in order to clearly identify our brand, along with our proven record in offering bespoke yacht charter packages, we have made the decision to change our name from Performance Yacht Charter to LV Yachting.
This will not be an instant change, but it does mean we are marketing next year’s events under a new name.
