Next year, for the first time in many years the course of Barbados Sailing Week's signature event - the Round Barbados Race - will track the fleet anti-clockwise. This means as well as the 22 records already on offer, the original outright anti-clockwise record of 10 hours and 15 minutes set by a schooner in 1936 is up for grabs, plus plenty of opportunity to establish more records on the new course writes Sue Pelling.

In an effort to make the event more inclusive for locals, and showcase sailing as a sport for all, the organisers - Barbados Cruising Club in association with Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc, and Mount Gay - have plenty of new incentives lined up for the 2020 event, which runs from 17-23 January.
