Sm-SSL-Sloop.jpg
A perfect day in Nassau, Bahamas, off the beautiful Montagu Bay, where the Best of the Best Regatta took place today with traditional sloops racing and Bahamian junior sailing running their 2016 finals.

A great occasion for our Star Sailors to jump on one boat, Crazy Partner, and challenge the locals on their specialties. "In nomen omen" and the boat proved to be one crazy partner with sailors unable to manage her. Going downwind the international crew thought it was a good idea to gybe, when the local tactician onboard didn't agree they didn't think it was because Bahamian Sloops cannot gybe.
