Welcome to Cayard Sailing

Paul Cayard

I just returned from one week of cruising with friends onboard a Moorings 4800 in the BVIs – refreshed and motivated.

Roomy, stable and shallow draft – the Moorings 4800 catamaran is the only way to fly. We hit the usual spots, Bitter End Yacht Club, Anegada for diving and a nice lobster dinner on the beach, the Cooper Island Beach Club which has gotten a major remake by her new British owners, then onto Norman and the Willie T and finally Jost Van Dyke, White Bay, the Soggy Dollar Bar, a new dinner spot called Corsairs which has excellent food and finally Scrub Island for a last night in a nice hotel before flying back to culture shock. Scrub Island Resort is only four years old and is truly a luxury resort – it’s worth trying out.

After a great week, and feeling inspired, I decided to update my website which has be now just been re-launched. Nothing major, just a fresh look.

Starting in December, I will be racing my Star in the Miami Winter Series, one event a month. I love the racing on Biscayne Bay in the winter and will have Brian Terhaar crewing for me.

I wish you all a happy holiday season!

Bacardi Cup-Final

Coconut Grove Lars Grael won the final race and his second Bacardi Cup in a row.  Lars’s success is even more remarkable as he is an amputee, missing his right leg.  He is a model of resilience.  Young Jorge Zarif with Bruno Prada crewing put in a good performance to finish second in the regatta […]
