When to Go
As a kid, we usually went during the summer holidays. This was to accommodate my dad’s work schedule. However, residents will tell you the best time of all is in early September. The summer weather has left the ocean warm and the tourists have left.
Now if you love boat races then go in June during the boat race.
If you love triathlons and races, BI has several races per year. I believe one is in June and one in September but I’d contact the Chamber of Commerce for a more detailed schedule.
