Scarborough, Tobago – Hoist the sails and cast off the anchor for the Annual Angostura Tobago Sail Week. With excellent sailing conditions, pristine beaches and a laid back island attitude, Tobago is the place to be for the competitive yet always convivial sailing challenge as well as the ‘limin’ spot for spectators and race enthusiasts from May 13th – 18th, 2007. In its 25th year, the event captures “The Spirit of Racing”, with its perfect blend of offshore rivalry and on-shore revelry.
Known to many as the “friendliest regatta” in the Caribbean, Tobago Sail Week will be held at the Crown Point Hotel at Store Bay. During the course of the four racing days, yachtsmen will compete in the following categories: racing, cruiser-racer, cruising, charter, multi-hull and comfort cruising. While racing is the main attraction, the regatta also boasts an atmosphere of “fun in the sun” most evident at the Regatta Village and especially during “Lay Day”, the Wednesday between races, where there is live music, food, drink and merriment.
Named after Angostura Limited, one of the largest distillers in the Caribbean and headquartered in Port of Spain, Trinidad, the regatta attracts both the serious racer and the fun-seeking sailor from around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, France, South Africa and Hong Kong as well as many Caribbean islands.
