Sail Your Way into 2019

December 03, 2018

December and January are always a very exciting time here in the Exumas. The weather is extremely enjoyable, the cheer is all over the island, and the festivities are happening on a daily basis. There are Junkanoo bands to be listened to, fireworks to see, and delicious food to be eaten. But when you are wrapping up the traditional festivities there is one more event you need to attend.

One of the most anticipated annual events of the year happens on the island on January 1st and is called the Staniel Cay Cruising Regatta. Join all the locals and visitors on January 1st to send off all the native sloops to a new year full of luck, love, and racing. You can catch this magnificent sailboat race on any of the public beaches that surround Staniel Cay. The sailboat to come in first will win a prize and major bragging rights!

Thank You
