The 2017 sailing calendar started off with the 15th Annual Bul’ Reg Regatta in George Town, Exuma, The Bahamas.

A total of 11 ‘C’ Class and four ‘E’ Class (junior sailors) sloops sailed competitively in Elizabeth’s Harbour. Founder of the regatta Leslie “Buzzy” Rolle and his team, namely Chairman Cecil Smith, Vice Chairman Kendal “Iceman” McPhee, Commodore Reginald McKenzie, Vice Commodore Reginald Smith, Treasurer Don Rolle and committee member Perry Rolle worked hard to ensure that this year’s regatta was a great success.

This year, the regatta was held in honor of the late Frank Hanna, and one of the races was named the Vernon Curtis Cup race. Both Hanna and Curtis contributed tremendously to the regatta and sailing in The Bahamas.

The Lady Eunice of Black Point, Exuma, skippered by Chucky Smith and Nabby Black, competed for the first time in the regatta and won the overall title.

In attendance at the regatta were Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources with responsibility for regattas V. Alfred Gray. Member of Parliament for the Exumas and Ragged Island Anthony Moss, Administrator Neil Campbell, Administrator Donald Rolle, Chief Councillor Clifford Brian Strachan, sailing consultant in the ministry Rev. Dr. Philip McPhee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BAF Global Group Ltd. Chester Cooper and retired administrator Everette Hart.

Minister Gray congratulated the Bul’ Reg committee for a job well done and encouraged them to continue promoting the great sportsmanship and camaraderie among sailors, natives and visitors. He commended the junior sailors for winning the Bul’ Reg Cup race and admonished them to carry on the great sailing legacy that was left for them.
