Butterfield Bank is a presenting sponsor of the upcoming Cayman Invitational Pirates Week Stage Race, scheduled for this year’s Pirates Week Festival. The event is scheduled to begin on Saturday November 8th with an individual time trial cycling race and is the first of its kind to commemorate the annual festival.
“Cycling is such a dynamic sport and to see a world class sporting event of this kind kick off our annual Pirates Week Festival is very exciting,” states Sheree Ebanks, Director and Head of Wealth Management for Butterfield. “As a full-service bank, Butterfield symbolises both tradition and advancement; this event encapsulates both.”
The early morning time trial will take place at 7 AM on the morning of the Pirates Landing on the waterfront. The big action, however, will take place in the afternoon at 12.45 PM sharp as the cyclists of the race hit the Pirates Week parade route for the first ever pre-parade cycling race.
The Cayman Islands Cycling Association comments, “The Saturday afternoon race especially will be tremendously exciting and spectacular for spectators. In essence we are bringing a little bit of the excitement of the Tour De France to the streets of George Town!”
The Cayman Islands Cycling Association is organising the event, which will feature several international cycling figures during an exciting three-day race schedule. With an endorsement from the Ministry of Sports, the event will feature a follow-up circuit race on Sunday 9 November at Governor’s Harbour and a fast coastal loop on Monday 10 November, starting at Public Beach.
