A spin off of the 2nd largest Family Island Regatta, the Long Island Mini Regatta events are well attended and supported every year. Locals have turned this collective fund raising activity into a prelude of the main event with competitive sloop sailing races. High energy music, scrumptious local dishes and overall games and entertainment make these Mini Regattas full of good, clean fun and excitement!
Local Nassau and family island class 'A' and 'E' native sloops will compete in a series of races in the waters off Montagu Bay. It features sculling, racing, and sailing, plus the popular ‘Catch Me If You Can’ Race, where the class 'A' sloops try to catch a class 'B' sloop.
The competition starts at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
This event is in a class all by itself! Come join in the fun during this blissful summer time where, in addition to the 'C' class boat races, you can enjoy live Bahamian musical performances that will get your feet tapping, games that will get your heart pumping, and Bahamian food and beverages to satisfy all your cravings, and more.
