The first part of the regatta is based at Port Louis Marina and then moves to Secret Harbour with the race on the 30th. We can advise on suitable land based accomodation for those wanting somewhere accessible to both locations.

In idyllic sailing conditions a challenging variety of shorter up/down around the buoys and longer reaching coastal courses off Western and Southern Grenada ensures there is something for everyone in this regatta. Classes range from the very serious to the more relaxed:

The Beneteau 40.7, A Bruce Farr design, is a real delight to steer upwind with little more than fingertip inputs required from the helmsman to keep her moving easily through the waves. They are fast and sleek with an impressive racing sail wardrobe.

The cockpit is big enough to race, yet compact enough for family cruising. Deep enough for security yet wide enough for efficient trimming. Expansive enough for a big crew yet small enough not to impinge on interior space.

The side benches are wide and comfortable to sit on while the sculpted side decks provide useful and comfortable sitting space while healing. The winches are well sized and effectively placed for efficient trimming.

Similarly the fractional rig looks and feels secure with all the real sailing control coming via a hydraulic backstay. Carefully configured to bend the mast and tighten the jib luff in unison this is about as simple as it gets.
