The Grenada Workboat Regatta Youth Sailing Event is a part of the Grenada Sailing Festival Heritage Work Boat Regatta, held this year on February 2-3. The event honors the working tradition of Grenada, and features traditional fishing boats from all over the island, competing in Le Mans style sailing race. The junior event featured four Lasers, three Optimists, and six Mosquitos sailing multiple rounds to make sure everyone got a chance to race. Festivities included a beach party complete with barbecue, a local DJ, and traditional steel pan music.
