For the third time in six years, the ARC Caribbean 1500 got off a day ahead of schedule (November 5) to take advantage of a promising weather window to get the fleet south. Once offshore, it was a fast, downwind passage for the majority of the fleet, with a classic late-fall weather pattern in place, and no activity in the tropics.
Yachts began arriving into Nanny Cay just over 7 days later, on Saturday November 12, with the Amel 54 Phantom first to finish. They were closely followed by the Dufour 56 Pure Elegance, and the Nordhavn 57 motor yacht Jura. Each night as yachts continued to arrive events were held on the beach at Nanny Cay, including several cocktail hours, a pizza party and a couple beach barbecues hosted by Peg Legs. Horizon Yacht Charters held a popular and informative seminar on cruising the BVI.
The 47th annual Peg Legs Round Tortola Race organised by the Royal BVI Yacht Club (RBVIYC) and sponsored by Nanny Cay, will take place on Saturday, November 19th. Four classes – racing, performance cruising cruising and multihull – will compete in the 37-mile race. The course change for the 2016 race will give competitors more tactical choices to make.
Hitting the beach at Nanny Cay marked the 695th mile of paddling for Durham University students George Parry and Will McMcCreadie.
