As part of our impressive benefits package, you can enjoy up to 20 weeks sailing per year and access to our collection of all-inclusive AQUA, AQUA·TERRA, and TERRA worldwide experiences. You also receive an exclusive invite to our complimentary Owners Rendez-Vous gatherings. These events take place in March and October each year, and we invite our esteemed Owners to join us for a few days of fun and relaxation in two dream destinations. Read on to learn more about these exciting benefits of yacht ownership!
At our first Rendez-Vous of the year, we welcomed our Owners to the beautiful Bordeaux region of France. We spent a few days at our impressive 17th-century Château Alizés – the perfect destination for a few days of decadence and indulgence!
Guided by our good friend and wine connoisseur Ben, we visited the charming, medieval town of Saint-Emilion, where wine has been made for centuries. Next, it was off to a local Château where we tasted some of the region's finest wines and learned about the winemaking process. Ben then guided us on our own exquisite wine tasting session in his world-famous wine shop in the center of Saint-Emilion. Fine wines, excellent food, and great company, do we need to say more?
One of the main highlights of this Rendez-Vous was our visit to our friends at VINIV on the west bank of Bordeaux, where we spent the day blending our own special wine. Now in its second year, this is a truly unique experience that has been specially curated just for our Owners. We blended a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon, and a Cabernet Franc to create a delightful wine that we named the 'Château Alizés Owners Reserve 2017'. Once bottled, each of our Owners receives a case of 12 bottles of their unique wine blend to enjoy at their leisure. C'est Magnifique!
Our second Rendez-Vous took place in October, this time on the stunning Caribbean island of Mayreau. Located in the Southern Grenadines, we enjoyed the glorious surroundings of our beautiful paradise island resort, TRIBU VILLAS, for a few days of fun in the sun.
On our first day, we took advantage of the gorgeous turquoise waters in the Tobago Cays where we enjoyed swimming, snorkeling, and sailing. The next day we set off for Palm Island, and relaxed on the white sand beach, swam in the sparkling water, and enjoyed a delicious lunch on board. Beautiful beaches, warm Caribbean waters, and stunning views – life doesn't get any better than this!
We spent our final day relaxing in the luxurious grounds at our TRIBU VILLAS resort on our own private beach and by our private pool. Then, at sunset, we opened a few bottles of the Château Alizés Owners Reserve 2017 and savored the exquisite wine that we had blended earlier in the year at Viniv. It was the perfect way to end our beautiful paradise island Rendez-Vous with our exceptional group of Owners.
Our Rendez-Vous gatherings are just two of the wonderful benefits of yacht ownership that you can enjoy when you become an Owner with TradeWinds. It's a great way to meet fellow Owners, enjoy each other's company, and share yachting experiences.
