Bajan spirit in full flow as teams celebrate their success
Bridgetown, Barbados (23 January, 2016): The 80th anniversary Mount Gay Round Barbados Series, which incorporates three days of coastal racing and headline event â€“ the Round Barbados Race â€“ concluded last night with a spectacular prizegiving ceremony at The Beach House, St James on the east coast of the Island.
Hundreds of competitors, guests and local dignitaries were treated to a sumptuous banquet to celebrate the success of not only the competitors who fought hard all week in the challenging conditions, but also the organisers â€“ Barbados Cruising Club in association with Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc, and Mount Gay â€“ and the race committee who helped make the 80th anniversary event one to remember.
The standard of competition throughout the three-day Coastal Series, particularly in the J/24 fleet and the Multihull fleet was, once again, extremely high with results going right down to the wire. The most exciting race of the series, however, was undoubtedly The Mount Gay Round Barbados Race.
