Now entering into its 7th year in its current format Grenada Sailing Week is bigger and better than ever. The Race Management Team have finely tuned the courses, giving a variety of upwind and downwind coastal legs, and a long run with the transition race from the protected west coast to the more challenging south coast. With CSA classes, a strong fleet of J24’s and a classic class already well established, organisers are pleased to announce a class for Carriacou Sloops. Danny Donelan, owner of Carriacou Sloop ‘Savvy’ and ‘Savvy Charters‘* has been instrumental in coordinating efforts to bring these island classics together for what is certain to be an impressive show. We would like to encourage all Carriacou Sloops throughout the region to come down and take part. As one of the key events in the Caribbean regatta circuit, we are excited to see a number of boats already register. From the sporty J24’s to Rob Butlers, Reflex 38 ‘Touch2Play Racing’ and the likes of Mathew Barkers, classic Alfred Mylne 65, ‘The Blue Peter’. Peter Anthony from Ondeck Sailing has registered and is offering space on their Farr 65 ‘Spirit of Juno’.
Consideration will be given to PHRF or other classes, such as bareboat depending upon sufficient entries (minimum of five boats).

As members of the Caribbean Sailing Association we were one of 10 regattas proudly sponsoring the RORC Crew Party at Cowes Week in UK, as part of a campaign to promote Caribbean regattas overseas. In September we are excited to be attending the first weekend of the Southampton Boat Show with GTA (Grenada Tourism Authority) to showcase and bring awareness to sailing in our beautiful island. If you are down there, please come by and say hello.
We are also supporting the Grenada Sailing Association in sending a team of youths to the CDC (Caribbean Dinghy Championships) held in Antigua this October. Trails for the Grenadian team were held on 17/18 August at the Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC) before intensive training begins prior to the Championships.
We are excited to continue our support of the youth sailing initiative introduced last year to help bridge the gap between between dinghy and keel boat sailing by entering a youth team into the regatta. The Grenada Sailing Association National Youth Sailing Team is made up of 16 to 20 year olds with Optimist and Laser experience from sailing clubs around the island.
