Sail-World.com : New Look Grenada Sailing Festival 2009

New Look Grenada Sailing Festival 2009

'Grenada Sailing Festival'   

There will be a new look and new features to the Grenada Sailing Festival presented by Port Louis and Camper & Nicholsons, to be staged from 30 January – 3 February 2009.

As always there will be four days of challenging top quality racing off the island’s southern coast together with the unique crowd-pulling traditional Digicel Workboat Regatta, and this year will be the first time that international competitors will be able to race under both CSA and IRC Rules.

This will make the Grenada Sailing Festival even more attractive to the growing numbers of international yachts in the Caribbean for the Season. The key focus of this move is to encourage yacht owners and skippers to spend more time in the region to enjoy the great racing conditions and famous party-loving hospitality.

Another exciting change which will encourage yachtsmen to come and participate in the Grenada Sailing Festival is a new initiative creating a ‘Southern Caribbean Regatta Circuit’ to kick off 2009 in the Caribbean.

The Festival will now take place between the Carriacou Regatta (14 – 18 January), moved from its traditional pre- Christmas dates, and the new Tobago Carnival Regatta (10 – 14 February), creating for the first time a great three-event racing schedule in the Southern Caribbean. The organisers are very excited by the plans and are liaising with both Regattas to promote this.

There are other reasons to come back to Grenada for the end of February. Two more very different and fun sailing events are coming up then, with the Grenada Classic Yacht Regatta from 19 – 22 February and the Le Phare Bleu Grenada Round the Island Race over the week-end of 13-15 March.

There will also be a new look to the party programme for the 2009 Festival. Once the racing is over, skippers and crews will be treated to a new programme of great events and Themed Parties, adding to the ‘must go to’ Mount Gay Red Cap Party, plus a different mix of locations including the fantastic new Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina and Le Phare Bleu Marina, as well as the ever-popular Dodgy Dock at True Blue Bay Resort & Marina – Pure Sail, Pure Spice and More Fun for 2009.

To reflect this new style and character for the future, the event also has a brand new logo. Striking and modern, with strong sailing imagery, the logo also incorporates 12 Degrees North – the unique location of the island. So look out for the ‘button’ to get more news and information on courses, entries, parties and events, as they are announced.

Check the official Festival Website at www.grenadasailingfestival.com where entry forms are also available. All these changes are complemented by the new Festival Administrator, Ria Delves, who can be contacted on gsail@spiceisle.com

The event for 2009 will be run with presentation partners Port Louis and Camper & Nicholsons, in association with the Grenada Board of Tourism. The organisers also welcome back sponsors Digicel; United Insurance; Mount Gay Rum; Heineken; True Blue Bay Resort & Villas and Colombian Emeralds.
