AdAstra News from Bridgett and Barry!

We just wanted to let everyone know, that after four years, Ad Astra’s rates will be going up on the 1st March 2010, however this will only effect bookings for Nov and Dec 2010 and the whole of 2011. In other words this March the winter 2010 and 2011 season are increasing. The increase is a $1000 all round.

Any bookings done prior to March of this year, for next year will be at the current rates. We will be chartering in the Grenadines next year ( April to July 2011.). We are very excited about this and will be adding a section to our website shortly ( this is being done as we speak). And once again we are still looking at going to the Med for the 2012, which confirms that Barry and I aren’t going anywhere just yet- he he!!

This will be our third year on Ad Astra. We are very fond and proud of how far the yacht has come and will continue to strive to do better as crew and with the owners helps keep Ad Astra looking fresh and Fab!!

Take care and thanks again!

Aldebaren's Expecting!!!

Well actually it is Aldebaren's wonderful crew, Justin and Cayley.

They wrote, "We are extremely excited and thankful to announce that the long time crew of Aldebaran, Justin and Cayley, are expecting a baby girl, who will be arriving, in March 2010.


Justin will continue to captain Aldebaran here in the British Virgin Islands. The Yacht will run with a freelance, superbly qualified and appropriate chef/mate/ hostess for charters through the season. Cayley will remain a hands on influence in maintaining and running the normal operations of Aldebaran, from land. So.... the arrival of one has resulted in the creation of a team of 3 ensuring the high standards and quality of a vacation on Aldebaran."

Justin and Cayley, Wayne and I wish you all the best with your soon to be coming bundle of joy!

Happy New Year...Welcome 2010!

Can you believe we are only 5 days away from the New Year, 2010! It seems like only yesterday we were being told that computers around the world would crash when the clocks rolled over to the year 2000, thank goodness that did not happen.

We'd like t0 take this opportunity to welcome you to our newly launched "blog" and to wish you a very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year. Our plan for this blog is to keep you up to date with yacht specials being offered, crew news, and to share information on chartering around the world. We welcome your comments and feed back at any time.

We recently returned from the annual yacht shows where we saw many of our friends, crews that we have known for years, and met new crews. We also had the opportunity to see yachts that are new to the Caribbean fleet, which there were quite a few of!

We are looking forward to this new year and hoping for all us, that the economy will continue to improve. For new let us say "thanks for visiting". Have a wonderful 2010 and come back often.
