Grand Bahama Island Sailing Regatta
The Annual Grand Bahama Sailing regatta is happening this June. The event kicks off from Taino Beach, where fleets of sloops line up to vie for the title of ‘Champion of The Sea.’ The regatta has been going strong for years, and attracts a mixture of professional and competitive sailors, as well as fledgling sailors wanting to cut their teeth. The event, though essentially competitive, is also open to curious sailors who want to join in for fun, or who just want to soak up the atmosphere the regatta generates. For visitors who simply want to take it in, there’s lots of entertainment of offer, with music, food and other Bahaman feel good celebrations happening in Taino. Taino is widely considered one of the most stunning beaches on Grand Bahama Island.
The waters of Grand Bahama make an idyllic setting for this great sporting event, with glistening aquamarine beaches scattered along its shoreline. Sailors wishing to travel by boats can arrive to the island via the three official ports of entry, namely: Freeport, Lucaya and West End. Customs and immigration will assess boats for entry upon arrival. In total, there are seven marinas on the island, most of them fully equipped with electricity hubs, waste-disposal units and fuel stations, which sailors can make use of.
The regatta will be held over three days, and has three main sloop classifications: “A” – 28 feet and up, “B” – Up to 20 feet and “C” – 12 to 14 feet.
A cash prize is awarded to the winner, as well as the ego-boosting title ‘Champion of the Seas.’ It’s a great event, and one that gathers the community in a spirit of fun and sportsmanship.

The ultimate of being successful is the luxury of giving yourself the time to do what you want to do – Leontyne Price
There are discerning people out there who already know what it took Mr Price years to learn. These are successful people who, through whatever medium or forte, have achieved enough wealth to enjoy financial freedom. The definition of wealth, some would say, is not just having enough money; it is also having enough time to enjoy it. Having wealth doesn’t automatically bestow this knowledge, though. It takes some people more than a while to understand that taking time to enjoy pleasure is as intrinsic to life as rain.
A healthy understanding about the positives of living life in the lap of the finest things on offer – true luxury – is quite scant. Let us tell you then that The Bahamas, home of Suffolk Court luxury Bahamas property, has a reputation for bringing people round to the idea of enjoying their wealth.
Private yacht hires, sunset cruises, cloistered beachfront pampering houses and cocktails on pearly-white sand are just a few of the things on offer on our turquoise shores. Strawberry and chocolate facials, rose-oil foot massages and deep neck rubs are a few more. If that doesn’t touch your pleasure nerve, how about a feast of delicious conch cuisine? Maybe a game of golf or two on paradise island? A bird’s eye view of our palm-fringed island from the lofty heights of a private jet?
Different parts of the world are known for different things. Sensory stimulation is to New York what romance is to Paris. But Luxury, the finest of all things in life, belongs to The Bahamas; not exclusively, but pretty close to it.
