Barbados Sailing Week 2020

The Caribbean racing season opens with the Barbados Sailing Week regatta, which was previously called The Mount Gay Round Barbados Series. The regatta is organized by Barbados Cruising Club in collaboration with Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. and Mount Gay. Barbados Sailing Week will be held from January 15 to 23, 2020. This regatta is expected to attract a huge number of professionals this year.

The race route is 60 nautical miles. For skippers, this race is a dream come true and a treat in the upcoming holiday season! Indeed, if a crew of a yacht breaks one of the 20 records, then they will receive the amount of rum corresponding to the weight of their yacht skipper!

The traditional race around the island of Barbados takes place on the day of Errol Barrow - a public holiday dedicated to the birthday of the first Prime Minister of Barbados and the "Father of Independence". Given the significant status of the day, the party atmosphere prevails throughout the island, crowds of locals and visitors annually take the best spots in advance to watch the race, which runs along the Atlantic coast.

Location

The regatta begins at the Barbados Cruising Club, then you sail through the historic Carlisle Bay, and then go 20 miles along the coast of Barbados, enjoying the views of this amazing island. Then the teams will sail out into the Atlantic Ocean and sail 7 miles there accompanied by treacherous currents and strong waves. After that, your route is towards East Point for another 20 miles. And the regatta ends with an 18-mile sailing along the south coast. You are at the finish line and we are sure this regatta will be in the top of your memories!
