John Barnard, one of the local representatives of United Insurance, has given his continued support to the Bequia Sailing Club, organizers of the Regatta. United Insurance continues its commitment to the development of sports, not just in St Vincent, but across the other 13 Caribbean territories where they operate.

“We are very proud to lend our support again this year as we continue to promote the development of sports throughout the region. At United, we believe that sports aids in the development of our people and our customers are at the heart of all that we do. Through this event, we not only advance the development of local and regional yachting but also provide a boost to the economy and sports tourism at this very critical time”, said Barnard.

Nicola Redway of the Bequia Sailing Club noted: “We are very pleased to have United Insurance with us again this year. The event would not be made possible without the generous support of good corporate citizens like United Insurance. We have another exciting regatta planned for this year with entrants from across the Caribbean and the world and we expect very keen competition each race day.”

The Bequia Easter Regatta, an International Sailing Federation (ISAF) Category C event, takes place from today, April 17th to April 21st, 2014, with more than fifty (50) yachts participating. The United Insurance J24 3-Race Challenge will take place on the second day of races and features the J24 class of yachts.

United Insurance and the organizers look forward to a weekend filled with fervent competition and great fun for participants and spectators alike.
