The team at Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week would like to assure everyone that the forthcoming regatta is still going ahead as planned. Despite the recent devastation to much of the northern and central Caribbean, Grenada in the south was well out of the path of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Communities down here have been rallying to help our northern neighbours get back on their feet. GSW manager, Karen Stiell says “It’s more important now than ever to show support for the Caribbean which relies so heavily on tourism, the sailing sector being a huge part of this industry. The Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week is at the start of the Caribbean Regatta circuit and we are excited to see a number of boats already signing up in all classes. We have reintroduced the popular one-design J24 class where we are certain there will be some fierce competition.”

Long time supporters of the regatta, Jaguar, The Blue Peter, Taz, Nickatime, Ambushe & Shangri La are already on board and its good to welcome back friendly faces like Rasmus. We are excited to see new entries Snatch, Wild T’ing & Touch2Play Racing among others, all vying for a place on the finish line. If you are unsure what is on the Caribbean regatta scene this year read this article by our friends over at Seahorse.
