Middle Caicos VALENTINE’S DAY CUP

Traditional Turks & Caicos Model Sailboat Races

The model sailboat race day on Bambarra Beach in Middle Caicos, Turks & Caicos Islands is ready for it’s annual event this coming year with a great line up of boats, food and music! So make plans to come and enjoy this wonderful cultural festival.

From the beginnings long ago at the turn of the millennium, with 6 boats and a handful of friends on the beach the Valentines Day Cup has become a national event, beloved by residents and visitors alike. Now, with over 25 boats in the Middle Caicos Sailboat Association fleet, plus over 10 boats coming in with their captains, the races are more serious and skillful!
