For as long as any one can remember, there has always been a Bequia Regatta. Formerly at Whitsun, now for the last 30 years held at Easter, Bequia’s Regatta is rightly famous for its unique blend of local boat racing, yacht racing shoreside activities and Bequia hospitality.

A fleet of more than thirty traditional local boats from Bequia and her neighbouring islands, some no more than 12 feet long, others a majestic (by comparison) 28 feet in length and capable of extraordinary speed and agility, compete out on the sparkling waters around Bequia.

And on the same waters, another fifty or more yachts compete in five CSA-officiated Classes every one racing with the same verve and determination, striving to achieve that perfect harmony of boat, wind and sail.

It’s a fabulous, colourful weekend, full of fun and camaraderie, skill and tradition, with the whole island caught up in regatta fever. Sunday’s Regatta Lay Day on Lower Bay beach sees a grand fete for boatloads of visitors from the mainland, while Friendship Bay Beach hosts a family Layday with Sandcastle and Crazy Craft competitions, and easter activities organised by regatta sponsors Bequia Beach Hotel.

The hard working volunteer members of the Bequia Sailing Club are responsible for putting on this high profile event every year, and the event is internationally renowned as the largest regatta in the region, the unique traditional local boat racing, and the well run, challenging yacht races which include the J24 Southern Caribbean Championship.
The island is almost full to bursting for the Easter period, and the harbour is packed with yachts.
