Whatever your level of experience, sailing and water-based activities can be fun and exhilarating in Tobago. The classic Caribbean ingredients of warm clear water, secluded bays and fantastic snorkelling, with predictable trade winds, make Tobago a great destination for those who yearn for the sea and like to get salty!

During the second week of May each year, Tobago hosts The Angostura Yachting World Tobago Race Week. The event is normally based in the grounds of The Crown Point Beach Hotel overlooking Store Bay. You are guaranteed to have fun in the Regatta Village - day, afternoon and night.
