The Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC) celebrated Bahamian pride at the 2019 “Best of the Best” Regatta this past weekend. Spectators and regatta enthusiasts were able to visit the Coca-Cola Sailor’s Lounge for complimentary glasses, tote bags and can cozies featuring iconic symbols from around the islands.
As far as the regatta is concerned, the Running Tide prevailed in Class ‘A’, Susan Chase V won the overall title in the ‘B’ Class and the Whitty K came out on top in the ‘C’ Class as Stephen Knowles from Mangrove Bush, Long Island, captained all three boats to victory.
“At CBC, we love celebrating our Bahamian pride whenever we can, and truly enjoy supporting Bahamian culture,” noted CBC Communications Marketing Manager Nikia Wells. “Regattas are the ultimate celebration of our culture, our history and provide a fun environment that unites Bahamians of all ages.”
In addition to receiving collectable Bahamian icon items, “Best of the Best” Regatta attendees were also treated to refreshing, ice-cold Coca-Cola No Sugar and the new Dasani Sparkling flavors, with the option of topping either off with Ricardo Anejo or Bombay Sapphire Gin.
The “Best of the Best” Regatta is just the most recent regatta that CBC has supported in 2019. CBC has been a proud sponsor of the Exuma Regatta, the Long Island Regatta, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and the All Andros & Berry Island Regatta. The company will also continue celebrating Bahamian culture by once again returning to Bay Street with the One Family Junkanoo Group, on Boxing Day.
“Be it regattas, or junkanoo, or Independence celebrations – CBC is committed to those events that support and celebrate the preservation and advancement of who we are, as Bahamians,” added CBC Activations Marketing Manager Gabriella Suighi. “We will be taking part in the Boxing Day Junkanoo parade with One Family, and we are excited to once again keep the crowds refreshed.”
The regatta season for 2019 is now closed, and as far as the “Best of the Best” Regatta is concerned, bragging rights are held by Long Island. Sailing enthusiasts are anticipating another thrilling season in 2020.
