Goombay Punch Cup

For hundreds of years Bahamians have set out exploring the high seas. Whether for enjoyment or livelihood, building boats and sailing them out is deeply rooted in our culture. Caribbean Bottling Company proudly supports Sailing, our national sport and the various Regattas held throughout the country. We believe Regattas unite and give Bahamians from far and wide a chance to return home, connect with their history and immerse themselves in our vibrant culture.
