“We were very pleased to see the tremendous amount of people watching the excitement from the shoreline,” said Lynden Johnson, Sales and Marketing Manger at Bahamian Brewery and Beverage. “The Sands family is pleased to sponsor this old Bahamian tradition of sculling as are we are proud to be a 100% magic3-bBahamian Brewery.”
