This month we have not kept up with the many sailing and fishing events and regattas happening around the Caribbean. These are some of the regattas that took place earlier this month: Carriacou Regatta Festival (August 2-5, Grenada), Aruba International Regatta (August 17-18, Aruba), and the The Trinidad & Tobago Great Race (August 17, Grenada). The International Billfish Tournament also took place in San Juan, Puerto Rico (August 12-18). Now, coming up is the Round Grenada Regatta, which takes place August 31-September 1.

Description: Single-handers and live-aboards as well as dedicated racers will enjoy this two-day regatta, which features an overnight stop at Carriacou Marine and party in Tyrell Bay, Carriacou. The start and finish is off Le Phare Bleu, home of the host Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC), located on Grenada’s southern coast. Each leg, to Carriacou and back, are approximately 30 nautical miles. “There will be two classes: a general Cruising Class and the J-24’s,” invites John Whitsett, PCYC commodore.
