Last year’s Sculling Champion was Clayton Bain, who  became a the two-time champion, with Dennis Fox from Salt Pond, Long Island taking 2nd place and Clay Moxey, winner of the National Family Island Regatta, placing third.

The Brewery has been extremely successful in their mission to revitalise the sport of sculling and Johnson invites all sailing and sculling fans to come out to the first event of the sculling season at St. Valentine Regatta on February 16th.

“It’s very nice to partner with Bahamian Brewery and Beverage on the sculling race as it’s something new and people look forward to coming out and competing for bragging rights,” said Eleazor Johnson, oganiser of the St. Valentine Regatta.  “I enjoy working with the Brewery team very much and look forward to working with them in future when it comes to sailing and sculling.”
