HomeBahamas EventsLong Island Regatta Billfish Championship

It’s hard to imagine a more wonderful place to get out on the open waters and make the most of the wind and marine life than the Bahamas. This captivating collection of islands is loved worldwide for its pristine beauty, dynamic landscape and stretches of sugary white-sand beaches that beckon sun worshipers to come and soak up the rays. Those looking to indulge in the ocean waves while working on reeling in the next big catch will want to head to these places to visit in Bahamas in June when the Long Island Regatta lines up with the Billfish Championships.

Sail and Cast Away at These Places to Visit in Bahamas

Following closely behind the Family Island Regatta held in Exumas each year, the Long Island Regatta proudly carries the titles as the Bahamas second largest sailing event. Skippers come from near and far to enjoy a chance to walk away with cash prizes while setting sail on some of the most beautiful waters around. While many boats make their way from distant shores, the Long Island Regatta is a chance for spectators to see many sailboats that are handcrafted right on the islands take to the waters in local style. To the joy of many anglers, the Long Island Regatta also commonly lines up with the last of four Bahamas Billfish Championship events, making a summer trip for Bahamas tourism one for the watersport record books.


The Long Island Regatta will set off June 5, 2019, near Queen’s Highway in Salt Pond and will continue through June 8th. There is no admission fee for this event and individuals and teams looking to participate are welcome to jump in the water and give it their best shot. Those looking to participate in the Billfish Championships will be directed towards a starting point at Treasure Cay. Registration fees for this event begin at $3,500. No matter which competition you choose to participate in, food, drinks, dancing and tons of fun are guaranteed from start to finish.
