In May or June, Long Island sailors participate in the big event of the year, the 4-day Long Island Regatta, held annually at Salt Pond since 1967. In addition to the highly competitive sailboat races, Long Island takes on a festive air with calypso music, reggae, and lots of drinking and partying. Many expatriate Long Islanders come home at this time, usually from Nassau, New York, or Miami, to enjoy not only the regatta, but also the rake 'n' scrape music. Call your local Bahamas Tourist Office for more information.
