LATEST NEWS FROM THE BVI SPRING REGATTA
BVI Customs and Immigration officials will being on-site at Nanny Cay from noon – 18.00 on Monday, March 30 and Thursday, April 2nd, to clear in yachts arriving for the Sailing Festival and BVI Spring Regatta.

For those of us who love to sail the sea is a sanctuary. It is our place of adventure, our home away from home and our playpen. But two comprehensive studies — by the 2003 Pew Oceans Commission and the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy — have made it dramatically apparent that our beloved ocean is severely threatened. With that in mind, the 2009 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival has joined forces with Sailors for the Sea to reduce the pollution generated by the regatta and to promote ocean awareness to others. March 30 – April 5, 2009, the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival with Nanny Cay’s support as presenting sponsor will be going “clean and green”.
Every year, well before registration closes for the BVI Spring Regatta, people ask, “How many boats are registered?” and every year, organizers reply something to the effect that the final registration numbers are hard to predict. This year is no different, but with the economy being in the toilet and the event looming only seven weeks away, the question seems more relevant than ever. The numbers for the 2009 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, March 30 – April 5, look healthy and regatta organizers have reason to believe that although 2009 will not be a record breaker, it will be a good year.
