Mangrove Cay Homecoming & Regatta
Date: 05.07.2010
Description:

Homecoming is among the many festivals celebrated in The Bahamas by the locals and it symbolizes the coming together and uniting of the entire community. Highlights of this event are the Sprig Sailing races and the Mother’s Day church service.

The venue is Mangrove Cay, described as an island within an island. It is separated from North Andros by straits known as North and Middle Bight. This is one of the few places where a visitor can still get a glimpse of the way of life that characterized The Islands of The Bahamas half a century ago.
