Calling all adventurers – Sunsail, a vacation industry leader specializing in sailing, is getting ready to set sail on its inaugural Kiteboard Flotilla.
Kiteboarders, kitesurfers, sailors and those that just like to watch – are invited to join this exciting and unique adventure in the Bahamas’ beautiful Abaco Islands, November 5-12, 2016.
A flotilla of five Sunsail 444 catamarans, all led by ocean guide and professional kiteboarder Brock Callen, will cruise along with a team from The Kiteboarder Magazine, Sunsail staff, and some very special guests. Only a few spaces remain. A video about the flotilla can be seen here.
Three charter options are available:
A bareboat charter — ideal for an experienced sailor with seven to nine additional guests.
A skippered charter — best for those with no sailing experience who desire a professional certified guide to their voyage. Since the skipper requires a cabin, this option is ideal for groups of up to six guests.
A skippered by-the-cabin charter — perfect for individuals or duos that only require one cabin. By-the-cabin charters are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Each day of the Kiteboard Flotilla will bring a new adventure as the group stops at some of the best kiteboarding spots in the Abaco Islands, renowned for their secluded coves and consistent winds. Guests can expect a near-endless succession of windswept hotspots by day and lively entertainment options by night.
Flotilla leader Brock Callen is a lifetime sailor who eventually developed a passion for kiteboarding about twelve years ago. Since then, he’s won numerous accolades including the Antigua-St. Martin Kiteboarding Distance Record; 2012 IRC North American Champion; Antigua Race Week Winner and more.
“I’ve been lucky to kiteboard and kitesurf in some of the most epic venues, but the opportunity to live on the boat and use that as the platform for all the fun is definitely the best,” said Callen.
“The Kiteboard Flotilla combines epic adventure with ultimate luxury – I want to roll over, have my coffee, and throw my kite in the water to ride before breakfast. I want to look through the binoculars, see a deserted beach and take the boat right there to ride in that crystal-clear Bahamian water. That’s what we all want, and Sunsail delivers.”
The Sunsail 444 is a veritable resort on the water, offering room for six to 10 guests. This state-of-the-art catamaran includes four double cabins with private baths; ample storage space for gear; plush seating/tables both inside and on deck; air conditioning; and a well-equipped galley with everything needed for dining at sea—from Corian worktop surfaces to a 3-burner stove and oven, stainless steel sinks, refrigerator/freezer and full assortment of plates, glasses, and cookware.
