The Yacht Club Palmas Del Mar hosted the 10th Annual Viking Yachts Caribbean Rendezvous on the weekend of June 4 – 6th. The event, organized by CFR Yacht Sales and the Viking Yacht Company, attracted thirty-five Viking Yachts from 40 to 74 feet in length for the weekend’s events. Attendees enjoyed three days of gorgeous weather with non-stop camaraderie.
Thursday night was the official registration and kick-off party, which included the christening of eight yachts. Thursday night was also the christening of The Yacht Club’s new bar overlooking the tropical pool and down island vistas of Vieques and the Spanish Virgin Islands.
On Friday, the rendezvous hit the beach – with a catered beach cookout in a spectacular tropical location only a short distance from the docks. Friday night was the disco themed party in what turned out to be the highlight of the weekend. A total of 150 guests and participants, with afros and multi-colored shirts, partied until the wee hours of the morning. A few of the visiting Mega Yacht crews let curiosity and the Puerto Rican hospitality get the best of them and joined the festivities. Saturday was the Beach raft-up party and several Viking Yachts headed over to the neighboring Spanish Virgin Islands, Vieques and Culebra, for a day of fun in the sun. An even greater number of the participants decided to stay and enjoy the amenities and facilities available at The Yacht Club and the Palmas Del Mar Resort. With miles of beaches, two 18-hole golf courses, a pro-tennis center, and the exclusive Beach Club, there was plenty to do at the resort.
For many, this was a great opportunity to connect with friends, and share experiences with other Viking Yacht Owners. It was also a great opportunity to speak with Viking factory representative and members of the CFR Yacht Sales team about the Viking Yacht experience.
