As part of the donation to the highly anticipated event, LIME will be providing prizes to winners in various categories of competition set to take place during the four days of festivities.

The regatta begins today with the fishing competition, which will see fishermen from the Grenadine islands, as well as Grenada and Carriacou, testing their fishing skills against one another.

A traditional cooking competition, as well as a games night will take place, followed by the opening ceremony later in the evening.

On Friday, the lionfish will be the ones hunted, as the keenly contested lionfish derby takes place. Individuals will be rewarded for killing the largest lionfish, most lionfish and heaviest lionfish, among other categories.

Friday will also see persons participating in kite flying, maypole dancing, domino and basketball competitions, as well as a lionfish cooking competition.

Saturday will see the beginning of the sailboat races, as well as a number of onshore activities, including the All White Glow Party.

The sailboat races conclude on Sunday, with the curtain coming down later in the day with the closing ceremony, where prizes will be distributed.

Organizers say that they are grateful for the contribution LIME has made to the event, which has been building in popularity over the years.

“We are truly grateful to LIME for their generosity in making our 2015 Regatta the best it can be for girls, boys, men and women of all ages. It’s our goal to have something for everyone during our four-day event and LIME’s contributions will make the LIME-sponsored events a highlight of the regatta for a number of participants.

“We’re very happy to have a partner like LIME alongside us, as we strive to make each year’s regatta better than ever before. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
