The local island life is very important to us at Sailrock. Providing support for local businesses on our island insures an authentic, vibrant community year round. Specific support is going towards locally owned businesses focused on South Caicos tourism. To further enhance island living for everyone, we are committed to developing the public beaches and airport. Non-physical improvements include donations to the local charity, Footsteps for Good and the creation of scholarships for study at the Institute for Field Studies. Sailrock South Caicos will also continue sponsoring the culturally significant Queen’s Regatta and other island festivals.
