The annual Angostura Tobago Sail Week ‘The Spirit of Racing’ celebrates its 24th anniversary this year.

The regatta takes place at the Crown Point Beach Hotel from Sunday to Friday and promises the perfect blend of superb racing and excellent on-shore fun.

It attracts yachts from as far as Europe, Britain and the United States and has the largest racing class in the Southern Caribbean.

Many foreign racing class boats are participating in the regatta including a boat of note “Storm”, Caribbean-built and owned by American, Les Crouch, which rivals some of the best in its class and has a racing record which is the envy of most.

On opening day is the Skippers Briefing and the regatta kicks off for four days of sailing on Monday with a “Lay Day on Wednesday.

Race classes include Racing, Charter, Cruising/Comfort Cruising and Cruiser-Racer.

Details of races and events plus articles and photos are on the website, www.sailweek.com
