The Puerto Bahia Marina & Residences will hold its second sailing regatta in the scenic Bay of Samana, situated on the country’s northeast section. The event is co-sponsored by the Dominican Sailing Federation and is scheduled to take place from September 16-18.
Participants will compete in various categories, such as Lazer Standard, Lazer Radial, Sunfish and Optimist A, B and C. All first-prize winners will receive awards. The scoring system used will be the “Low Point Score.”
The 185-room Puerto Bahia Marina & Residences facility, which also includes individual villas, is a beach-front facility, situated on the southern end of the Samana peninsula, 35 minutes from the region’s international airport and two hours from Santo Domingo, the capital city. The gated community sits on a hillside overlooking the spectacular Bay of Samana, included in 2009 in the very exclusive “Most Beautiful Bays in the World” club.
Its full-service marina has moorings for 107 yachts running up to 129 feet, and a special dock for 150-foot yachts.
