The consensus amongst participants is that all editions of the Nereid's Rally, visiting Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname from Trinidad and Tobago were a great success!

Crews were certainly kept busy in Guyana, with tours of the interior, Georgetown and Bartica on offer, plus visits to boutique resorts including Hurakabra, Baganara and Sloth Island. From Saint Laurent du Maroni an equally impressive agenda of activities had crews touring the historic buildings, jungle trekking along the Mana river, and visiting the Amerindian village of Galibi in Suriname.

 

Organisers expect that the Nereid's Rally, will be instrumental in dispelling some of the myths that surround sailing south of Trinidad and Tobago, and that many more yachts will be making the passage south in future.

The strong support shown by the Guyanese Minister for Tourism, the Mayor and the Mairie of Saint Laurent du Maroni, is certainly encouraging. The coordination between the Coast Guard, Gendarmerie, ministers police and local officials was exemplary, ensuring a safe, trouble free visit.

Plans are already afoot for next years rally where organisers expect to accommodate a much larger fleet. “We are pleased to announce that the annual Nereid's Rally is set to become the regions première yachting event, and that local involvement and participation will remain a priority”.
