Set Sail

March 20, 2015

George Town's Elizabeth Harbor comes alive the last full weekend in April when a fleet of beautiful Bahamian native sloops gathers for the National Family Island Regatta. An island tradition dating back to 1954, this is one of the oldest regattas in the Bahamas and, as such, a beloved event of islanders and anyone lucky enough to be in visiting an Exuma resort April 21 – 25. Beckoning Bahamian boat builders and sailors (and those who aspire to be), this treasured annual event showcases traditional Bahamian sloop sailing at its best and most beautiful.

Address: Elizabeth Harbor, George Town
