Caribbean Swan Program

2020 Swan Program: Newport - Bermuda - St. Maarten

This fall, sail in the NARC Rally on a Swan!

2020 NARC Schedule Summary

Crew arrives in Newport and move aboard Saturday, October 24 for departure Monday, October 26. Even with a one to four day weather delay we will still be in Bermuda by Tuesday night November 3. We will not depart Bermuda before Wednesday, October 4. Plan to fly home from St. Maarten Thursday, November 12. This will still give you a couple of days in St. Maarten. We have three Swans sailing in our fleet this October. All have made the passage with us before and we have repeat skippers coming back to lead each crew.

The full 20 days aboard a captained Big Swan sailing 1,500 miles from Newport to Bermuda and then to St. Maarten is $3,500 all-inclusive except travel to and from the boat and meals and drinks ashore.

Please note that this is not the best first-time offshore passage since we start in colder and rougher conditions rather than the spring passage that starts in warm trade wind conditions.

Please e-mail me first and then we can speak on the phone before signing up for the Swan NARC Rally Passage so we can make sure you are ready and up for the challenge. Just as we required people to get COVID tests before they joined us for the sail to Bermuda, expect to be required to take a test before sailing to Bermuda this fall as well. By then it should be much easier to get tested and get results quickly. If you are interested in joining us this fall please contact us before making a $500 deposit online.
