Since 1954, a large regatta for the fishermen's former work boats has been held at least once a year at various locations in the Bahamas, including off Nassau. The course is divided into three classes, A, B, and C, depending on the size of the boat.
The peculiarity of these boats is the lever board, available once or twice depending on the size of the boat. The crew members do gymnastics on it as far as possible in order to gain weight and create a righting moment. In turns, this board is maneuvered from one side to the other as quickly as possible and pushed with the on-board end under a bracket on the deck as a counter bearing.
Last year, some star boat sailors even managed to go aground with one of these boats.
Here are the best pictures of the event
