Seychelles prepares for Sailing Yacht Regatta

In a few days the Seychelles will be welcoming the participants of the Seychelles Sailing Yacht Regatta 2010 which takes place from the 22nd to the 30th May.

The 10 teams that have entered the competition will meet under the Seychellois sunshine to discover Eden Island, the start and finish of the race. They will then set sail on Sunday 23rd to race within the archipelago of the Indian Ocean. Peter Smith, Head of Sales and Marketing for Eden Island, and his team are enthusiastically preparing this second edition. 

The Seychelles Tourism Board has taken over the organisation of the event this year and is looking forward to hosting some of the biggest names in sailing for this unique event. Alain Saint-Ange, Director of the Seychelles Tourism Board declared that Seychelles Regatta is a pinnacle event in yearly calendar of events and the aim is to perpetuate it in the years to come. Seychelles is an amazing playground for regattas thanks to the 115 islands that offer a large variety of race routes. Sailing is also one of the best ways to discover the Seychelles and to access the islands by mooring in heavenly places.

The sailing yacht fleet of 36 to 57’ catamarans will host crews of 6 to 8 people coming mainly from France.
