Hand's Across the Sea Caribbean Getaway Contest

The ASA and Hands Across the Sea are giving away a Caribbean getaway in their annual contest raise money for education in the Caribbean.

The Caribbean is a beautiful place, and Hands Across the Sea wants to take you there!

The nonprofit's annual American Sailing Association/Hands Across Sea Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes begins today. It’s easy to support a great cause and be in to win one of two great Caribbean experiences.

Make a donation to Hands Across the Sea to support literacy for Caribbean children, and you'll be entered to win a one-week catamaran charter for four people in Grenada, courtesy of Sunsail Yacht Charters and LTD ("Live the Dream!") Sailing.

Second prize is also spectacular: seven nights for four (two rooms) at The Veranda Resort, a luxury retreat on Antigua, courtesy of Elite Island Resorts.

You'll be helping Hands Across the Sea put new amazing books into the hands of Caribbean children, from pre-school to high school.
