by Jonathan

YESTERDAY’S opening ceremony at the Barbados Yacht Club, Bay Street, St. Michael signalled the start of several new features of this year’s Mount Gay Rum/ Boatyard Regatta.

The opening ceremony itself is new to the event but the Organising Committee wanted to formally welcome sailors from Barbados and across the Caribbean to one of the biggest events on the sailing calendar. Entertainment, food and brief speeches including remarks from the Hon. Richard Sealy, M.P., Minister of Tourism who was full of praise for the regatta which has attracted the largest number of sailors this year.

Additionally, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Mount Gay Rum/Boatyard Regatta organisers have added a number of other new elements to this year’s festivities.
