2021 Round Barbados Sailing Week CANCELLED

 

Owing to the restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, several overseas sailing ships have indicated that they would not be able to participate in the Round Barbados Sailing Week 2021.  As a result, The Barbados Cruising Club took the decision to cancel both the Round Barbados portion of the regatta AND the coastal races until 2022.

All happnin' at Barbados Sailing Week 2020

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.

2019 - Trevor's Sailing for The Zander Venezia Trust

Every year windsurfer Charles Trevor Hunte attempts to break his record time windsurfing around Barbados.  This year, he will be raising funds for the Zander Venezia Trust.


It is Barbados Sailing Week again and this year, I’ve decided to dedicate my efforts on January 21st to Zander Venezia; who was a 16 year old professional surfer who I have spent many years in the water with.

Zander’s family has started “The Zander Venezia Trust” a registered charity #1375 to aid and assist underprivileged and disabled children throughout Barbados. If you would like to pledge a donation in my efforts to the The Zander Venezia Trust, you can donate via online at www.gofundme.com/livelikezander or by contacting me directly. #livelikezander
