ECONOMIC RECESSION OR NOT, Barbados is still the number one destination for sailing in the Caribbean.
That is according to Howard Palmer, chairman of the organizing committee for the 78th Mount Gay Round Barbados Race Series, who has insisted that the island continued to attract much attention from sailing crews across the world.
Palmer said that although the world was facing a major financial crisis, this year’s event had still managed to attract a record number of participants, with 50 boats, 25 of which are overseas entries, and over 400 sailors set to compete.
This increased interest and participation, he said, had forced them to transform the one-time, one-day racing day into a one-week series.
