The 2016 Booby Island Regatta And Sailing Festival


The Booby Island Regatta & Sailing Festival

30th April – 2nd May 2016

Anyone Can Enter. Anyone can Win

The Booby Island Regatta and Sailing Festival is a fun 3 day Regatta and Sailing Festival in the beautiful Caribbean islands of St Kitts and Nevis. The Booby Island Regatta is a little bit different to the norm. We have designed the sailing to give everyone the opportunity to take part and compete regardless of the yacht’s capabilities or crew’s level of experience and have included a few of our own ideas to level the playing field. Our race philosophy, borrowed and adapted from the Olympics ethos, is 

“The most important thing is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but living well.”

Alongside three days of sailing we have a full program of events to encourage competitors and spectators alike to come ashore and enjoy the best that Nevis has to offer. We’re continually adding to this website so call back soon or leave your email address for Regatta Updates
