Family Island Regatta

Here's a short vid of the Family Island Regatta in Georgetown, Bahamas in 2000. The course took the boats through the anchorage and there were some interesting close encounters, including a couple with our bowsprit.

We were there in 2009 anchored off of volleyball and then in one of the holes - great time! The wind was blowing 20-30kts and several boats sunk (to be recovered later). It was great to watch. Thanks for sharing the video!
