Independence celebrations at the United Insurance Work Boat Regatta

Wear your national colours & start Independence celebrations at the United Insurance Work Boat Regatta.

Organisers of the Grenada Sailing Festival United Insurance Workboat Regatta are inviting everyone to wear their National Colours & bring a flag to Grand Anse Beach this coming weekend, and begin Independence Celebrations in great style.

 Racing for the big prize in the United Insurance Work Boat Regatta 2013.
This year marks an important milestone, as this very popular, high action, high fun event has been run on Grand Anse Beach for twenty consecutive years. Over these years the event has become extremely important as a showcase of the strong sailing heritage of Grenada & its sister islands, and an integral part of the culture. Once again skippers will be bringing their boats from the traditional sailing communities of Carriacou, Gouyave, Petite Martinique, Sauteurs and Woburn and will be taking part in two days of the most spectacular and competitive racing.

There will be a full day of Community Class Racing on Saturday and again on Sunday morning, when all crews will be going full throttle to win first place and qualify for Sunday afternoon’s GSF16 Match Race Final – for the highly prized overall title of ‘Skipper of the Year’ & a cheque for US$1,000.00! There will be more action on Sunday in Grenada Sailing Festival’s own fleet of GSF16 Workboats, when each community nominates a Junior & Senior crew to compete to be ‘National Team Sailing Champion’ for 2013.

There will be great action on the beach as well, with Festival favourite DJ Blackstorm, and games and activities including a Fitness Challenge sponsored by Fit For Life Gym. There will be arts and crafts on sale, Community Kitchen food stalls, where all the best traditional dishes will be on offer and the whole event will be rounded off with a wonderful firework display courtesy of Spice Island Fireworks - a true high spot to start the week of Independence celebrations.

The Grenada Sailing Festival United Insurance Work Boat Regatta will be staged on Saturday & Sunday 2 & 3 February on Grand Anse Beach with additional sponsorship support from the Grenada Board of Tourism; Carib; Budget Marine; Mount Gay Rum and Bryden & Minors; True Blue Bay Resort’s Dodgy Dock; Victory Bar; RBTT Bank; Coca Cola and Etang Water; Mecca Trading; Island Water World; Camper & Nicholsons Marinas; Grenlec; Boss FM; L.L Ramdhanny; Courts; DeSign Factory; Country Cold Store; CocoNet; Horizon Yacht Charters; Island Dreams Yacht Services; Grenada Postal Corporation;  Spice Isle Fish House and Spice Island Fireworks.
