Prime Minister Davis presented the Prime Minister’s Cup to ‘Whitty K’, skippered by Mr C Burrows.

Minister Sweeting, along with Leonardo Lightbourne, the parliamentary secretary, presented the crew of ‘One Bahamas’ (Class E) with the Ministry of Agriculture, Marine Resources & Family Island Affairs Cup.
