A Lively Day One For BVI Spring Regatta

It may have been a rainy day in the BVI but not enough to take the heat out of today's racing, which saw 12 classes on three courses enjoy a consistent easterly breeze of 13-15 knots. Some competitors continued their winning streak of earlier in the week: SPOOKIE, the TP52 owned and skippered by Steve and Heidi Benjamin (USA), took first in CSA-Racing 1 with 3 points; Ventaneiro 3, owned and skippered by Renato Faria (BRA) sits in first in CSA-Performance Cruiser 1 with 2 points; and in CSA-Bareboat 2, Warvor, helmed by Willem Ellemeet (NED) is also in first with 2 points.

Intrepid Wins 3rd Annual VP Bank Tortola Sloop Spring Challenge

Today was all about switching gears and changing pace, with the 3rd Annual VP Bank Tortola Sloop Spring Challenge being raced off Nanny Cay as part of the BVI Spring Regatta's Maritime Heritage Day. The Challenge brings to life the significance that the beautiful old Tortola Sloops played in island life more than a hundred years ago, and celebrates the theme of sailing which has always been a mainstay of island culture.
