The 2nd Annual Hotel & Tourism Regatta was held on Saturday, April 14, 2018. Teams from  Westin St John, Mafolie Hotel & Restaurant,  Ritz Carlton, deSIGNS, and Marriott’s Frenchman’s Cove competed in buoy racing in Cowpet Bay. The breeze was ON and the teams were up for the challenge!  While some team members had sailing experience, many had never been on a sailboat before. This event gave people that had never sailed a chance to steer, trim sails and race an IC-24 keelboat under the guidance of a professional coach. Check out the photos below to see the great job everyone did learning sailing skills and competing on the racecourse!

Following racing,  teams returned to the yacht club for lunch and an awards presentation, and of course,  sharing tales of the day’s excitement. The overall winner for the regatta was Marriott’s Frenchman’s Cove with Scott Derrickson, Raheem Malone, Meredith Higgins and Ilena Snodgrass . In second place were the Ritz Racers from the Ritz Carlton.  Mafolie Hotel and Restaurant team came in third. Everyone who participated had an adventure and went home a winner!  This is an annual event and we hope to see you all again next year.
