BVI Spring Regatta

BVI Spring Regatta Will Take Place In 2018

Call for sailors to attend the BVI Spring Regatta 2018- March 26- April 1 With most of the Caribbean islands caught in the wrath of hurricane Irma and then Maria, two category five hurricanes that hit land and made history, the message from the organisers of the BVI Spring Regatta is strong and clear:

Light air challenges 2017 Spring Regatta fleet

Racing started at 1000 in an 8-10 knot easterly on Day 2 of the 2017 BVI Spring Regatta. Race one treated the 28-strong CSA Bareboat fleet to a spectacular course starting off the west end of Peter Island, up through the Sir Francis Drake Channel between Peter and Norman Islands, around Peter to finish off Pelican Island.

Doug Baker and Crew on Runaway Win 2017 Nanny Cay Cup

A tauntingly light breeze of 5-7 knots out of the south was enough to get 50+ boats starting in the Nanny Cay Cup, the first event of the 2017 BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival. Rather than the usual Round Tortola Race, conditions favoured a 16 NM course starting in the channel off Nanny Cay and taking the fleet around Pelican and Flanagan Islands. The breeze built a little around the islands offering up a fairly steady 7-8 knots throughout racing.

New boats & old favourites prepare for 46th BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival

Always offering up something new and different, the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival 2017 is pleased to welcome the C&C 30 Sportboat and Gunboat fleets to this year's event which kicks off today with registration at noon and opening party at 6pm. Tuesday March 28th brings on the Round Tortola Race, a 31-nautical mile race around the beautiful island of Tortola, for the Nanny Cay Cup - a challenge for the fastest mono and catamaran record around the island.

The Gunboats Are Coming

With six Gunboats confirmed to race the 2017 BVI Spring Regatta, the competition dial has been seriously notched up for one of the best Caribbean racing events under the sun. In the line-up are: Gunboat 60 Arethusa, Gunboat 62 Elvis, Gunboat 66 Extreme H2O, Gunboat 60 Flow, Gunboat 60 Momentum, and Gunboat 55 Thirst.

50 Days To First Start Gun In BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival

It’s 50 days until the start gun for the first day of racing in the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival. A highlight is always the diversity of boats that participate across many classes - this year there will be some 18 classes - including boats who are in for the very first time, like the newly launched all-carbon HH66 NALA. Others, such as the J122 El Ocaso which has competed in the regatta for the past 10 consecutive years, just keep coming back for more.

2016: A Look Back

The year ended on a high note, as we opened the new outer marina after 17 months of construction. At a ceremony held at the entrance to the new outer marina on December 12, Premier and Minister of Finance, Dr. the Honourable D. Orlando Smith, OBE, declared the marina officially open.
