Annual Mount Gay Round Barbados Yacht Race Series – 16th-24th January 2018.
The 82nd edition of the Mount Gay Round Barbados Race Series regatta, organised by Barbados Cruising Club in association with Barbados Tourism Marketing and Mount Gay Rum, is now one of the most popular events in the Caribbean. With direct, daily flights from London to Barbados and twice weekly flights from Manchester now could is the time to grab a midwinter getaway.
The main draw is the headline event – the 60 miles Round Barbados Race – which offers speed sailing enthusiasts not only a chance to enjoy spectacular sailing on a race circuit with uninterrupted winds, but also a chance to win their skipper’s weight in rum if any of the 20 class records are broken!
The Mount Gay Round Barbados Regatta Series is based off the Barbados Cruising Club beach at the south-west corner of the Island in Carlisle Bay just 25 minutes drive down the West Coast from Royal Westmoreland.
Finally, a visit to the regatta and the home of Mount Gay wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the legendary Rum and a tour and tasting session at the Mount Gay Distillery.
