Battle of St. George's Caye Regatta or Battle Regatta (BR) is scheduled to be held on St. George's Caye on Sunday 12th September 2010 as part of the September Celebrations.
This event is being organized by the Belize Sailing Association (BzSA) and is the first of a series of planned activity to rejuvenate sailing and other forms of recreational water activity. BzSA is newly incorporated and is shortly to finalize preparations to launch "Project Optimist" as its main effort to bring the art of sailing to schools and youth groups for 9 to 14 year old boys and girls.
Battle Regatta is intended to be an exciting family event at the historic original Capital of Belize on the nearest Sunday commemorating the decisive Battle in 1798.
Races will be open in various classes for traditional and modern high performance sail boats in pristine sheltered waters near the shore for maximum spectator interface. Food drinks and souvenirs will be on sale. The disco is free. Water taxis shuttle will be provided by Guerrero/Manta Charters from the Princess Marina for $20.00 per person outbound from 7:00 to 10:00 am and returning 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
Bring the family to spectate or participate by bringing your
