The Oracabessa Bay Marlin Tournament
The annual Oracabessa Marlin Fishing Tournament - held in early October each year - is a fundraising event for the Oracabessa Fisherman's Group. Funds are used by the Group to promote sustainable fishing practices among its members.
High tech equipment? Not here. Million dollar boats? Nope. Fancy rods and reels? Nowhere to be seen. Twice in the last three years the Champion Marlin has weighed in at over 500 pounds! Unbelievable.
Jamaica Bicycle Bash
In 2008 the Oracabessa Foundation partnered with the St. Mary Off-Road Bicycling Association (SMORBA) to create an event that celebrates Jamaica's unique bicycling culture.
Dubbed the Jamaica Bicycle Bash - the event is filled with competitions and races that test riders' skills in a fun-filled environment. The Rambolympics, RamboRace, Bunny Hop and Stunt Course are all crowd favorites.
Staged in May at James Bond Beach, the Bicycle Bash has become a calendar event for all bicycling loving Jamaicans.
