Mount Gay Round Barbados Regatta – All Comers Welcome At Caribbean Race-Season Opener

As race teams discover the delights associated with The Mount Gay Round Barbados Race Series, the organisers – Barbados Cruising Club in association with Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc and Mount Gay – are preparing for the biggest entry seen for some years at the 2017 event in January (16-24).

This Caribbean Race Season opener offers both high profile teams and club race teams an equal chance to contest not only the highly competitive three-day Coastal Series but also the 60nm Mount Gay Round Barbados Race, and a final 265nm Ocean Passage Race to Antigua to link up with the Superyacht Challenge.

While beautiful yachts including Adix and Elena are keen to uphold the tradition of schooners racing around Barbados, and professional race teams such as Team Concise 10, and Team Phaedo3 (MOD70s) continue to race for the Absolute Multihull record, smaller boat teams including multihulls, J/24s and windsurfers have recognised the opportunity for a chance to win their skippers’ weight in Mount Gay Rum if they break one of the 14 records up for grabs.

The mix of seriously fun racing, and fine Bajan hospitality continues all week with a party every night including the legendary Mount Gay Rum Red Cap party, and a final grand prizegiving party at the Beach House, Holetown. Lay day activities include a tour/tasting session at the Mount Gay Distillery, and a specially laid-on exhibition polo match at Holders Polo Field, St James.
