Working with TCB, we are honored and proud to contribute to the Regatta Bonaire 2024 and enhance the experience of our community while honoring the rich culture and heritage of Bonaire. This is how we go the extra mile to ensure your smile.”

Miles Mercera, CEO of TCB, in his role as coordinator for the 2024 Regatta Program, gave a presentation on the history of Regatta, the enthusiasm for continuing a tradition that started in 1967, and the importance of having this event on the island.

New additions to the Regatta celebration include the introduction of the first annual Caribbean Rampage event during Regatta Week. The Regatta sea activities will commence on October 6, 2024, with all water sports competitions and activities and the famous swim to Klein Bonaire.
