Seychelles 2011 Festival of the Sea launched with a bang

Minister Joel Morgan congratulated the Seychelles Tourism Board and the RoundTable Organizers of the Annual Regatta for having worked together to bring about a greater event than usual.

This year the Beau Vallon Bay event was seen from a floating stage, which had been made possible by the local VIJAY Engineering&Construction Company through contacts made by Local Events Coordinator Marie France MacGregor on behalf of the Seychelles Tourism Board. ‚ÄúVIJAY Constructions and Mrs. Marie France MacGregor enabled us to stage the event with a difference. The floating barge provided at no charge by VIJAY Constructions made it possible to move the stage from its car park setting and on to the sea, setting the scene for a true Festival of the Sea&Regatta,” Alain St.Ange, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, told the press after the official opening ceremony.

The Seychelles Tourism Board this year joined their annual event, the SUBIOS, Festival of the Sea, with the Round Table’s REGATTA and they surprised Seychelles with an event that jumped all expectations.
