Bequia Easter Regatta
Categories: Regattas & Cruising Rallies
Bequia’s Easter Regatta - celebrating its 36th Anniversary in 2017 - is famous the world over for its unique blend of top class yacht racing, thrilling local “double-ender” boat racing, and the warm, small-island hospitality that is Bequia’s trademark.
A fleet of more than thirty traditional local boats from Bequia and her neighbouring islands (some no more than 12 feet long, others up to 28 feet in length) compete with extraordinary speed and agility on the sparkling waters around Bequia. On the same waters, but on separate and tailor-made courses, the competitors in the 50-plus yacht fleet battle in their five separate Classes over four days, for a place on the winner’s rostrum.
It's a fabulous, colourful 4-day event, full of skill, camaraderie and fun, with the whole island caught up in regatta fever. There is even the usual regatta ‘lay day’ Sunday when its time for the yachtsmen to kick back and relax, enjoy the start Sunday’s local boat race, and the children’s Sandcastle Competition, or just chill out on one of Bequia’s many beautiful beaches.
The dates for this year’s event are April 13th – 17th, 2017. For further details including registration for Bequia Easter Regatta 2017, contact the Bequia Sailing Club.
