Feel the tradewinds rustle through your hair from the cockpit of a racing sailboat or while reaching for a Red Stripe on the deck at Jamaica’s Montego Bay Yacht Club during the annual Easter Regatta. “This event has come to be known in the sailing community as a perfect weekend of fun-filled sailing where everyone—regardless of yacht size or class of boat—is equal at the line,” says Vice Commodore Lynda Langford. The holiday regatta kicks off on April 18th with a single-handed race aboard the club’s fleet of J22s to Mosquito Cove and back. Then on April 19th and 20th all-comers race on round-the-bay and round-the-buoy courses. Easter Sunday (April 20th) features a special menu at the club’s Seahorse Grill restaurant, while children’s activities include an Easter egg hunt and hula-hoop contest. Located on the Freeport Peninsula on Jamaica’s northwestern coast, the club offers dock space for visiting yachts with water and electric, diesel fuel, changing rooms, a bar, and shoreside accommodations for up to six people. Shops, sights and watersports rentals are all nearby.
