The Grenada Sailing Festival attracts sailing enthusiasts from all over the world. Starting on Friday 27th January, the Grenada Sailing Festival with presentation partners Port Louis and Camper & Nicholsons, will host four days of great competitive racing off the Island's southern coast, based out of the new Port Louis Marina. There will be a great mix of popular and new courses to provide challenging sailing for top quality international keelboats from the UK, USA, Europe, as well as strong competition from local yachts from Grenada & the Caribbean Region. Once the racing is over, skippers and crews will be treated to a great party programme focused at Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina, and the ever-popular Dodgy Dock at True Blue Bay Resort & Marina.
For the second time, the Grenada Sailing Festival will present the traditional Digicel Independence Workboat Regatta on the following weekend (3rd - 5th February). This fantastic event, based on Grand Anse Beach will be staged as part of Grenada's Independence celebrations.
