Ahoy there, get ready to sail

It’s time to mark your calendars for the Parade of Lights.

Cayman 27’s annual holiday event featuring a Christmas concert and boat parade is set for 10 December at Camana Bay.

It’s not too early to register and start planning your design for either of two categories: Private and Water Sport (personal watercrafts do not qualify for stand-alone parade entry).

Judges will be looking at “wow factor”, creativity, use of colour, and overall impression, organisers said. The winning boat in each category sails away with a $2,000 prize.

Last year, Santa’s sleigh was guided by a reindeer on Lonnie Jackson’s 21-foot angler, Jackson 5, which won in the private boat category. Sunset Divers’ 38-foot V-hull Michael Fitz custom dive boat, Sunset Diver 2, took the top spot in the water sport category.

Space is limited, so boaters are encouraged to register early.

Registration is free. Email the following information to Monique Hather at [email protected]: Boat name, size, make and model; category (Private or Water Sport); owner’s name; skipper’s name; mobile phone number; and email address.
