Bahamian Brewery and Beverage Co, maker of Sands Beer, held its first E Class regatta sculling race at Fort Montagu, Nassau, at the end of last month.

The event was part of the brewery’s commitment to promoting Bahamian culture through sport.

The first sculling races for Sands Beer took place in February 2012 at the St Valentine Regatta at Fort Montagu.

The second was at the Rock Sound Homecoming in Eleuthera in April, followed by participation in the One Eleuthera Foundation’s Earth Day in Governor’s Harbour, and then in Exuma, followed by the Long Island Regatta in June.clearclear

The next one will be at the Annual Grand Bahama Regatta September 27-30, 2012.

The financing structure for this ambitious project on an as yet unnamed island has been designed by Capital Corp Merchant Banking, a middle market international project financing group. The $36.75 million project will be financed through debenture and common stock.

The Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) has issued a 700 MHz spectrum license to the Bahamas Telecommunications Co Ltd (BTC).
