Mango Bowl Regatta A Success!

On the weekend November 25-27 Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia was vibrant with sails of all colours racing in the 2022 Mango Bowl Regatta hosted by the St. Lucia Yacht Club. Saturday’s perfect sailing weather brought the regatta racing to a start with the J24 and Surprise classes finishing 6 races for the day and the Racing class finishing 3 longer races. Three additional races on Sunday completed the series with overall excellent racing conditions, stiff competition and great comradery on and off the water.

The Mango Bowl Regatta is Saint Lucia’s premiere sailing regatta and has brought sailors to our island and our waters for the three day event at the end of November for the past 10 years. Celebrating its 10th anniversary were sailors from Trinidad, Grenada, Barbados, Martinique and Saint Lucia who, over the two days of racing, competed for the coveted mango bowl and rum prizes.

This year 17 boats were entered to race; in the J24 class – 8, French Surprise class – 6, Racing class – 3. Sailors were especially excited to be racing again in Saint Lucia after a few dry years due to the global pandemic. Sponsor of the regatta and director of Dive Saint Lucia, Nick Mobley, said “(it was) …the best Mango Bowl yet!”
Gold sponsor, IGY Rodney Bay Marina’s manager, Sean Devaux, congratulated the sailors and organizers for a superb regatta, one that IGY is committed to supporting for the next 10 years!
