BOATING IN THE BAHAMAS

Regatta.

Regatta

Since the mid-195os, Bahamians on various islands in the archipelago have celebrated various significant events with a regatta. These events celebrate the skill of Bahamian boat builders and the sailors that man them. Racing rules require that competing vessels must be Bahamian designed, built, owned, and sailed. There are sometimes restrictions on materials used to preserve the traditions that the events are intended to celebrate.
