CHALLENGE

Nanny Cay launched the Nanny Cay Challenge for the round Tortola record in 2010. Yachts, kiteboarders, and paddleboarders visiting the British Virgin Islands are invited to make an attempt to beat the latest round Tortola records.

It’s an all-comer, any-day event, starting and finishing off Nanny Cay. Competitors (except paddboarders) must attempt the record anti-clockwise and round Beef, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe and Guana Island to port.
