JAC Beach Fete this Monday

The first ever JAC Beach Fete, part of the annual Jet Around Cayman festivities, is set to take to the beach this holiday Monday.

Starting at 3pm, after the popular JAC jet-ski race, soca superstar Bunji Garlin and hip hop superstar BabyYu will take to the stage for the performance of a lifetime, set against the backdrop of Seven Mile’s Public Beach, said a press release.

‘The vibe this year on Public Beach for Jet Around Cayman will be nothing short of explosive,’ Kenny Rankin of Monster Media, who also owns and operates the radio stations that co-promote the event, said. ‘Between the obvious excitement of the jet ski race, there will be models, beach volleyball and then – of course – a fete featuring Bunji Garlin and DJ BabyYu.’

Jet Around Cayman begins officially at 11am with the check-in of the riders. At that time, DJs form Vibe 98.9 FM will take to the stage to begin warming up the crowd for the afternoon. At 12pm, riders will be interviewed on stage in the Gatorade G2 Tent. At 1pm sharp, riders will make a staggered start for the race. The winner of the totally-unique endurance race is normally in at 10-15 minutes past 2pm. Awards take place at 3pm.

At that time, the JAC Beach Fete will kick off featuring performances by Bunji, BabyYu and appearances by a host of guest soca superstars. Party goers are encouraged to wear hot beach party wear and plan on being featured in both live video and event photography.

Bar service will be provided by Calico Jack’s and feature specials on Red Stripe.

According to organisers, Calico Jack’s will feature an ocean-side after party featuring three of the island’s biggest returning house music DJs to cap off the evening.

‘This year for Jet Around Cayman, we are offering a completely fresh experience,’ Mr. Rankin said. ‘This will be a party in every sense of the word and it’s all thanks to our sponsors Cable & Wireless.’
