Great news! The 1st Annual Hope Town United Sailfish Tournament was a huge success. More than $200,000 was raised and will go towards rebuilding the Hope Town Primary School, constructing the new Abaco Community Care Center, and restoring Elbow Cay residents' homes destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.

The outdoor tiki bar and south lawn at Sailfish Marina Resort provided amazing, open-air spaces in which to enjoy the Captain's Meeting and Dinner, Songwriters in Paradise Concert, and Awards Dinner and Trophy Presentation. A succulent pig roast from Pig Beach Palm Beach BBQ, courtesy of pit master Woolfolk, and a delicious rum tasting from Frigate Rum, served out of a vintage Defender bar, were among the many highlights Friday night.
