In addition RSP, is a major investor and founding partner in the Cotton Bay Development, South Eleuthera. In fact T. Albert Sands was not only the founding President, but it is due to his unique business and personal relationship with Juan Trippe, the Aviator and Developer of the original Cotton Bay Club, that this development opportunity became available to create what has become the largest majority Bahamian owned development company in the Bahamas.
