Grenada Sailing Week Announces Return to Full Program for January 2023 Regatta
The Organizing Authority of Grenada Sailing Week is excited to announce the return of Grenada’s premier sailing event under the title: The 2023 Pure Grenada Sailing Week, with title sponsorship from the Grenada Tourism Authority. After a break due to the pandemic and the successful return of an abbreviated regatta in 2022, the Organizing Authority is pleased to once again offer a full, week-long schedule of racing, parties, and events. Responding to the success and popularity of last year’s Around Carriacou race, the 2023 Pure Grenada Sailing Week will begin on Sunday 29 January with the Final Registration, Skippers Briefing, and Welcome Event at Carriacou Marine, Las Iguanas and The Original Slipway Restaurant and Bar on Carriacou. The first race day, Monday 30 January, will see participants sail around Carriacou, with start and finish in Tyrell Bay. Day two will be a race from Carriacou to Grenada, finishing in the vicinity of Le Phare Bleu Marina, before a Lay Day on day three. Days four and five will see sailors return to the water for a series of shorter races off of Grand Anse. The final prize-giving will be held at Camper & Nicholson’s Port Louis Marina.
This fun-filled, family friendly regatta with nightly events and prize-givings is open to a range of CSA-rated boat classes. The event has already drawn significant attention with fifteen boats currently registered, from Richard Szyjan’s local Hobie 33, Category 5, to boats from Trinidad, Martinique, Great Britain, France, and the US. These include Chloe Need and her all-female crew aboard Moonflower 3, and Chris Woods aboard Aussage, who will be joining the regatta after crossing the Atlantic with the ARC+.
