Race Away in Bahamian Style at These Bahamas Tourist Attractions
Fondly referred to as Regatta Time in Abaco, this annual racing event has been hosted for the past 44 years and is both highly popular and highly competitive. Annual racing time in Abaco features five high-profile races over the course of nine days that beckon sailors from near and far to come and test their skills on the water alongside others with a similar passion for taking to the seas. The entry fee for each race is $125 for those who sign up early and $150 for participants who register after June 1, 2019. Participants are free to sign up for a single race, a combination of competitions or take a shot at each and every one!
Race one has a set course on June 27th from Marsh Harbour to Hope Town and will begin at 11:00 am sharp. An award show and party will follow the conclusion of the race at Hope Town Inn and Marina. Race two takes sailors around Hope Town on June 28th with a secondary awards party to follow at Hope Town Harbour Lodge. The races move along on a path from Hope Town to Guana on June 30th with an after-party at Grabbers Bar and Grill.

Race four on July 1st will be Guana to Treasure Cay with a Cocoa Beach Bar awards party while race five will consist of a Green Turtle Bay triangle race on July 4th.
