A Scottish whisky company is organizing the St. Lucia Sailing Cup sponsored by Glen Flagler.
Scotland’s seafaring spirit is important to the country’s national culture. To honor this, the company is committed to celebrating the achievements of maritime communities and individuals who share their passion for the ocean.
This year, they are welcoming maritime communities in St. Lucia.
Each of the finalists will be judged by an impressive panel of judges including officers from the British Royal Navy, and Olympic sailing medalists.
