BVI SPRING REGATTA CREWS PREPARE FOR COMPETITIVE RACING

With less than three weeks to go until the start of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, teams from several countries including: Germany, The Netherlands, UK, Canada and USA will join local sailors at one of the most popular and friendly regattas in the Caribbean.

The international fleet will be hosted by Nanny Cay Resort and Marina on the idyllic island of Tortola and is home to the yachts during the week and where the sand-between-the-toes partying takes place at the Regatta Village each night.

The regatta attracts an eclectic mix of boats and crews, from first timers to regular racers and top professional teams too. Friday 3 April to Sunday 5 April sees three days of world-class racing action in the BVI Spring Regatta, but is preceded by the four-day Festival of sailing where teams will vie to break the record for the Nanny Cay Cup in the Round Tortola Race.

New this year is the Veuve Clicquot Island Invitational, a pursuit race to neighbouring Jost van Dyke, home of the world famous Foxy’s Bar, where teams will be welcomed with beach games, BBQ and the music legend of the island, Foxy himself. The lay day is a day to celebrate the maritime heritage of the British Virgin Islands with 100-year old Tortola sloops racing the VP Bank Tortola Sloop Challenge. That afternoon, registration opens for the BVI Spring Regatta with the traditional Mount Gay Rum Welcome Party.
