Taking into consideration the issues of the current moment the committee decided to cancel this year’s regatta. We thought we would give you some throwback pictures of this amazing yearly regatta!!

The National Family Island Regatta
Each year, for four days only, the best sailors from every major island in the Bahamas converge at Elizabeth Harbour on Exuma Island for the National Family Island Regatta. During these four days, Bahamian sailors arrive prepared to sail their locally-built sloops for the much-coveted “Best in the Bahamas” title. The competition is fierce and the atmosphere is alive with excitement as boating enthusiasts the world over descend on this picturesque island in the sun. Since the first race held in April 1954, the National Family Island Regatta has grown in size and popularity. (credit https://www.exumabahamas.org/article-family-island-regatta.html)
