Scarborough, Tobago - March 17, 2008 - Cast off and step ashore to the dual-isle nation of Trinidad & Tobago for the 26th Annual Angostura Tobago Sail Week. With superior sailing conditions, sun-kissed beaches and a friendly island vibe, Tobago is the place to be for the most spirited sailing challenge in the Caribbean from May 11-16, 2008. Now in its 26th year, the event captures "The Spirit of Racing" for spectators and race enthusiasts alike.
Known to many as the "friendliest regatta" in the Caribbean, Tobago Sail Week will be held at the Crown Point Hotel at Store Bay. Throughout the four racing days, yachtsmen will compete in the following categories: racing, cruiser-racer, cruising, charter, multi-hull and comfort cruising. While racing may be the main attraction, the regatta also boasts a "fun in the sun" atmosphere most evident at the Regatta Village and especially during "Lay Day", the Wednesday between races, where there is live music, food, drink and merriment.
Named after Angostura Limited, one of the largest distillers in the Caribbean headquartered in Port of Spain, Trinidad, the regatta attracts both the serious racer and the fun-seeking sailor from around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, France, South Africa and Hong Kong, as well as many Caribbean islands.
