Other sporting and cultural events take place on land and fierce competition is the order of the day. Rum drinking is king, with lots of local Jack Iron rum consumed. Everyone is involved... even the cruising sailors' dogs! Here's our friends Stacy and Rene Foree with some local pups.
I had a fun day out on the Carriacou Fun Runner owned by Sherwin of Lambi Queen restaurant to see the racing action up close.
Dinghies ferried partygoers from shore to the Lambi Queen.
There was plenty of fun, food, and drink aboard the catamaran-turned-party barge.
The top of the party boat provided an excellent vantage point to watch the regatta and enjoy the sun.
Enthralled by the beautiful scenery and gorgeous boats, I took photograph after photograph of the racing action.
We saw the launch of many racing workboats along the shore. It was interesting to watch them roll the boats into the water using fenders and brute strength.

Here are some pics of the racing action from the regatta. A good time was had by all!
