Boat Races Draw Big Crowd

Jan. 2, 2006 – By all accounts the 2005-2006 Crucian Christmas Festival boat and Jet Ski races were a resounding success. The race's organizer, Deon Malone, was all smiles after the event.
"It was good, we are looking forward to doing it again soon."
Malone estimates there were "well over" 4,000 spectators lining the beach in Frederiksted on New Year’s Day to see the races. Malone said he hopes to stage another race during the Easter season or in the summer.
Trophies were given out for the boat and Jet Ski winners at "Fergusville" Festival Village on Monday. Here are the results:
