Bequia Easter Regatta
April 18th – 22nd, 2019
Bequia’s Easter Regatta – celebrating its 38th anniversary in 2019 – 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 ft. long, others up to 28 ft. in length) compete with extraordinary speed and agility on the sparkling waters surrounding Bequia. On the same waters, but on separate and tailor-made courses, the competitors in the 50+ yacht fleet battle in five separate classes over four days for a place on the winner’s rostrum.
It's a fabulous, colourful five-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 it’s time for the yachtsmen to kick back and relax, enjoy Sunday’s local boat race, and the children’s Sandcastle Competition; or just chill out on one of Bequia’s many beautiful beaches.
