Bermuda’s Cannabis Licensing Act

On 19 February 2021, the lower house of Bermuda’s Parliament (the “House”) passed the Cannabis Licensing Act 2020 (“CLA”). The legislation was, however, rejected by Bermuda’s upper house, the Senate, and sent back to the House on 3 March 2021. Bermuda’s Government has nevertheless committed to pressing forward with the legislation. 

As of the date of writing, passage of the CLA would make Bermuda the first offshore location to join a growing number of jurisdictions legalising (or taking steps to legalise) the cultivation, import/export, and sale of both medical and
recreational cannabis. As an established offshore jurisdiction with a globally respected regulator, Bermuda presents an attractive location for investors interested in the still-nascent, but rapidly growing cannabis industry. As established cannabis companies in North America mature, Bermuda also presents a known solution for offshore corporate structures.

Walkers Takes on Title Sponsorship of Cayman's Marathon

Leading international law firm Walkers has signed on as title sponsor of the Cayman Islands Marathon for what will be at least a three-year partnership. The event, which takes place on Sunday 5 December this year, will now be called the Walkers Cayman Islands Marathon.

Although new to the sponsorship family, Walkers has been connected to the race for many years through the participation of its employees. Individuals from the firm have been competing in the four-person relay event since 2007. When the relay team classifications – all female, all male, corporate and mixed – were introduced in 2011, the Walkers Running team became the team to beat, placing in the top three for the corporate and overall categories almost every year. The 2020 edition of Team Walkers Running – Peter Kendall, Christian Bourke, Christopher Brett Young and Theo Lefkos – finished first in the corporate division and second overall while Team Walkers Running A, consisting of Hugh Anderson, Helen Green, Martin Davies and Andrew Barker, placed third overall.

“We are thrilled about this new partnership with Walkers. We have worked hard over the years to make this race a first-class, international running event by listening to our participants, getting feedback from our sponsors and learning from previous years and other races. For an organisation of Walkers’ status to see the value of the Cayman Islands Marathon, recognise the quality and reputation of the event, and want to get involved is both validating and encouraging for our team. We are grateful for the investment and the confidence which they have placed in us,” said Race Director Rhonda Kelly of KHL Events & Communications.

Walkers' Cayman Managing Partner, Tim Buckley, stated, "We are delighted to be the new headline sponsor of this fantastic sports event, which draws a huge amount of international interest and highlights all that the Cayman Islands has to offer. For the avoidance of doubt, we are faster than our name suggests and will be out in full force at the marathon to prove it later this year. I would also like to take this opportunity to invite walkers and runners at businesses and firms throughout the region to sign-up and support the event. See you on race day!"

The new sponsorship is a welcomed one after the race’s 10-year relationship with its previous title sponsor recently concluded.

Registration for the 2021 Walkers Cayman Islands Marathon, half marathon, four-person relay and Milo Kids Fun Run is open online at caymanislandsmarathon.com. There is also a virtual option for the full and half marathon events.
