The eco-luxe resort will be the event's headquarters for the next 3 editions of the rally. With its prime location on Grenada's southwestern coast and on the stunning Grand Anse Beach, the resort is the perfect host for the rally. Mount Cinnamon in coordination with the Port Louis Marina, will ensure a smooth and safe arrival for the fleet.

Mount Cinnamon Resort is a luxury property located on the captivating island of Grenada. Situated on a lush hillside overlooking Grand Anse Beach and the St. George's harbor and just a few miles from Port Louis Marina in Grenada, which serves as the arrival port for the rally.

Mount Cinnamon is renowned for its breathtaking views, world-class amenities, and personalized service. With its collection of spacious villas and suites, guests can unwind in style, immersing themselves in the natural beauty of the island while enjoying unparalleled comfort and relaxation.

By becoming sponsor of the Viking Explorers Rally, Mount Cinnamon reinforces its commitment to fostering connections with the sailing community and promoting Grenada as a premier destination for nautical adventures.

"Having local companies supporting the rally helps also to promote directly the island of Grenada, these companies serve in many cases as "ambassadors" for the destination", says Oliver Solanas Heinrichs, managing director of the rally.

For the 7th consecutive year, the rally will set sail on the 6th of January of 2024 towards the shores of the Caribbean Island of Grenada with an intermediate stop at Mindelo at the Cape Verde Islands.
