Nanny Cay Challenge

2018 Nanny Cay Round Tortola Race

The 48th edition of the Round Tortola Race, sponsored by Nanny Cay, will take place on Saturday 12 January 2019. Entries are invited to compete in Racing, Cruising and Multihull Classes.

The traditional course, required for those attempting the Nanny Cay Challenge for the Round Tortola Record, takes the fleet anti-clockwise around Tortola leaving Beef Island, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe and Guana Island to port. In 2016 an alternative course was introduced to offer competitors more tactical choices with the option to choose their route around Scrub, Great Camanoe and Guana after leaving Beef Island to port.

Nanny Cay Challenge Monohull Record Falls To SPOOKIE

TP52 SPOOKIE Nanny Cay Cup

Triple Jack takes overall; SPOOKIE breaks Monohill Round Tortola Record;

The BVI Sailing Festival Round Tortola Race for the Nanny Cay Cup and Nanny Cay Challenge started promptly at 09:30 on Tuesday morning in seas a little rougher than normal due to last week’s high winds, and an easterly breeze of 18+ knots.

The BVI-based trimaran Triple Jack, owned by Richard Wooldridge and Steve Davis, charged off the start to an early lead in the CSA Multihull class. She made her way around the island in 3 hours and 19 minutes – almost 46 minutes slower than her record-breaking time last year – but her corrected time of 3:46:38, gave her first place overall in the 2016 Nanny Cay Cup.

Despite high hopes for optimal conditions with 15-20 knot winds from the SSE, winds were lighter than expected. Indeed, the winds softened for the important final leg from Soper’s Hole back to Nanny Cay after some unexpectedly big winds on the north side of Tortola.
