Several of the premiere Caribbean regattas have agreed to adjust their dates in 2013 to improve crowding the racing calendar.  The race directors will meet again in October 2012 to discuss this new schedule and work on a permanent solution that will run from 2014 onward. The big boat racing circuit in the region has grown over the years, with new regattas being added and smaller events developing to an international level.  This resulted in a crowded race calendar with some conflicting dates. Peter Holmberg of the Caribbean Sailing Association spearheaded this effort in an attempt to help both the visiting sailors and the events.  “The regatta directors were asked to consider the overall benefits, and not just the success of their individual event.  The spirit of cooperation from everyone was greatly appreciated.  With these adjustments, the entire Caribbean gains- the individual regattas and sponsors gain, the island economies gain, and the sport of sailing gains.”

The new regatta dates and links to their websites can be found right here. https://caribbean-sailing.com/csa/2013-caribbean-international-regatta-calendar/
