Dubbed the event where sailing meets fun, the regatta officially sailed off last night with a welcome party at West Point Bar in Jolly Harbour.
Organisers said in a release that the one of a kind event has something for everyone.
“On the water, this exciting Regatta has something to offer for everyone – from great CSA racing classes to pursuit classes for those who take their racing a little less seriously and just want to have some fun, to a Laser Pico class which will offer exciting dinghy racing off the south beach of Jolly Harbour. Laser Pico racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday only.
“No matter whether you are a sailor, a race chaser or a landlubber, we have a number of ways for you to enjoy the event,” organisers said.
