At last, the Caribbean Regatta season has returned after a long hiatus with Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week, the Petite Calivigny Yacht Club edition.

Sailors from at least 11 different nations will be racing at the ninth edition of Grenada Sailing Week, January 27-30, 2022. With international entries from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Spain and even Hong Kong plus Caribbean entries from Grenada, Carriacou, Martinique, Barbados, and Antigua.

This year's event has a new programme. The Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC) edition features three spectacular coastal races in the sublime surroundings of Grenada and the sister island of Carriacou.

"The PCYC always runs an annual coastal race and this year the club has teamed up with Grenada Sailing Week," commented PCYC Commodore Carol Gorvette." So, this year's programme of racing is a leeward race from Grenada to Carriacou, a round Carriacou Race and then a windward race back to Carriacou. The emphasis is most definitely on fun, the fleet are really looking forward to the beautiful scenery and a regatta with a destination, especially Carriacou which is a beautiful island with a rich heritage is sailing and boat building."

Friday 28 Jan Race Day 1 - Grenada to Carriacou - Sponsored by Grenada Tourism Authority.
Saturday 29 Jan Race Day 2 - Round Island Carriacou - Sponsored by Tyrrel Bay Boatyard and Marina.
Sunday 30 Jan Race Day 3 - Carriacou to Grenada - Sponsored by Mount Gay Rum.

Four classes will be racing at Grenada Sailing Week. Eight performance cruisers and race boats will be in CSA 1. The largest entry in CSA 1 is Peter Anthony's Antigua Farr65 Spirit of Juno. All of the teams have a high level of racing experience. A special welcome to debutant for the regatta Dominique Tian's Ker 46 Tonnerre de Glen. The team from Marseille in France, just finished third in class for the RORC Transatlantic Race.

There is an international match race in the multihull class with David Slater's Toronto team racing Outremer 45 Delphine against Stephan Bourne's Royal Hong Kong YC team on Rapido 60 Ineffable. The nine-strong Classic Class features six Carriacou Sloops, the biggest gathering of the traditional wooden boats for many years. The largest entry in the Classic Class is also the oldest entry in the regatta. Mathew Barker's Alfred Mylne sloop The Blue Peter was launched in 1930.

Grenada and its islands have over 200 years of history in boat building and the locally built Carriacou Sloops will be an impressive sight, quite literally in their element.
