Oyster Yachts announce that the new Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina will host the first Oyster Regatta to be held in Grenada in April 2011. Planning for the regatta, which will run from 11-16 April 2011, is already well under away, with Oyster’s Liz Whitman working with the team at Port Louis Marina and the local Marine and Yachting Association of Grenada (MAYAG) to make this a really great event that will showcase the best that the famous spice island’ of the Caribbean has to offer Oyster owners, many of whom will be visiting for the first time.

Oyster’s CEO, David Tydeman said, “We are delighted to be bringing the Oyster Regatta to Grenada next year and, having enjoyed racing the Grenadian work boats some years ago in the Grand Anse Bay, I am sure that owners of our yachts are going to enjoy visiting one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and the very special welcome that awaits them”.

The Hon. Glynis Roberts, MP has enthusiastically endorsed the regatta and commented, “As Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, I warmly welcome this Oyster Regatta and say thank you for choosing Grenada as the venue for the 2011 gathering. I welcome this event on behalf of Prime Minister Hon. Tillman Thomas and other colleague members of our Government, as well as on behalf of all the warm and wonderful people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinque”.

Glynn Thomas, General Manager of Port Louis Marina, said, “We at Camper & Nicholsons are delighted to have been chosen to host the Oyster Regatta, and are looking forward to welcoming the fleet to the island and to our marina. Grenada is a fantastic venue for this event, and those taking part are sure to enjoy some great sailing on the water and some uniquely Grenadian hospitality ashore.”

Oyster’s Service Representative, Graeme Maccallum of Caribbean Yacht Management, who is based in the British Virgin Islands, is already planning an Oyster ‘cruise in company’ for those owners wishing to bring their yachts south from the Leeward Islands and through the Grenadines ready for the regatta.
